HE’S BACK, BABY.

Tiger Woods last night won his first title in over two years - the first since his infamous personal meltdown over Thanksgiving in 2009.

Yesterday, he put all that behind him to win his own tournament – the Chevron World Challenge – by one shot over former Masters champion Zach Johnson.

This morning, that result – in an admittedly mediocre field – means Woods leaps 31 places in the world rankings. He is now up to 21st.

Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood were also winners at the weekend, but they remain second and third respectively in the rankings. Luke Donald is out on his own.

The Holywood man can catch Donald in the European Tour money list race by winning in Dubai this week – and hoping the Englishman finishes outside the top nine.
