Tiger Woods Jumps to No. 6 in the World and Becomes Masters Favorite

Tiger Woods hadn't won a PGA Tour event in over two-and-a-half years. During his drought he fell from his tenured No. 1 ranking in the world and sat at No. 18 before winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational. His victory quickly vaulted him up 12 spots back into the Top 10 at No. 6. His 13-under performance also gave him a big bump in the odds for the Masters going from 7/1 to the favorite at 4/1. Rory McIlroy is 5/1, Phil Mickelson is 10/1 and the current No. 1 golfer in the world Luke Donald sits at 15/1.
