Tiger Woods' best PGA TOUR finish since 2013 led to large leaps in both the FedExCup and the Official World Golf Ranking.
Woods earned 245 FedExCup points after sharing second place with Patrick Reed at the Valspar Championship. They finished one shot behind Paul Casey, who earned his first PGA TOUR win since 2009.
Woods jumped 89 spots in the FedExCup, from 132nd to 43rd. He now has 345 FedExCup points. Last season, it took 365 points to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs.
Woods has not competed in the FedExCup Playoffs since finishing second in 2013. He is the only two-time winner of the FedExCup (2007, '09).
