Only 16 months ago, Tiger Woods was a lowly 1,199th on the Official World Golf Rankling.  

Today, he’s up to No.6 following his thrilling Masters victory

Woods, 43, has climbed six spots from 12th after holding off Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka to win his 15th major, and his first in 11 years. 

It’s his highest ranking since June 2014.

Meanwhile, the $2,070,000 cheque he banked for winning The Masters – a tournament record first prize – has increased Woods’ career earnings on the PGA Tour $118,309,570, almost $30m more than his nearest challenger, Phil Mickelson.
