FedEx Cup points standings 2013: Tigers Woods jumps to No. 2 after win at Doral

USA TODAY Sports

Tiger Woods jumped from No. 10 to No. 2 in the 2013 FedEx Cup Standings after winning the WGC-Cadillac Championship by two strokes on Sunday.

Unsurprisingly, Tiger Woods made a big leap up the 2013 FedEx Cup standings this week after winning the 2013 WGC-Cadillac Championship on Sunday. Woods jumped from No. 10 to No. 2 just behind Brandt Snedeker after finishing at 19-under over the weekend. The 177-point lead is the slimmest Snedeker has had since taking over atop the leaderboard after placing second at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in early February.

Steve Stricker was the biggest riser among this week's Top 10. He finished two strokes behind Woods to take second place at Doral, and jumped 11 spots from No. 16 to No. 5 as a result. Meanwhile, John Merrick was the only golfer to be bounced from the Top 10, landing at No. 12 in the standings from No. 8 after earning just 10 points for finishing in a four-way tie for 60th.

The Tampa Bay Championship next week will offer 500 FedEx Cup points to the winner. Snedeker may be forced to sit due to a nagging ribs injury, but his lead will likely remain intact. Only Matt Kuchar can potentially take over atop the standings, with Woods not listed in the tournament's field.

Here's the Top 10 as of March 11:
