The last time Tiger Woods won a PGA Tournament was at the BMW International in 2009. Since then, he’s bad a bit of…err…drama in his life, but he is back to his previous winning ways thanks to a 5-shot win in the Arnold Palmer Invitation at Bay Hill over Graeme McDowell. Today’s win, his seventh at Bay Hill, moved him up the overall rankings a considerable way.
Tiger Woods moved from 18th to No. 6 in the world. Jim Furyk went from No. 54 to 50 while Ernie Els clocks in at 58.

We’ll likely see Woods in action next on April 5 at the Masters in Augusta, where he will play for the legendary green jacket. He has won the prestigious tournament four times, most recently in 2005 when he held off Chris DeMarco with a birdie on the first playoff hole. If he has truly begun to hit his stride, he could not have done it at a better time.
