Tiger back into Top 20

Tiger Woods has moved up to 17th in the world rankings after his tie for third place at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. Woods climbs 8 places after losing his head-to-head battle with England's Robert Rock in the final group.

After Abu Dhabi, his first event of the year, Woods next scheduled appearance is the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-AM in two weeks.

"I've got a week off to get ready for Pebble, and then we have a couple of big events, a couple of World Golf Championships," he said.

"So there's plenty of big events to go, but I'm pleased at the progress I've made so far. Basically since Australia, my stroke-play events have been pretty good. So I just need to keep building, keep getting more consistent."

Woods entered the 2011 season as the top-ranked player in the world, but during his erratic, injury-plagued season he briefly toppled out of the top 50 before winning the Chevron in December.

Rock's win takes him soaring from 117th to 55th in the world, while Rory McIlroy, who came second in Abu Dhabi, moves up to No2 behind fellow Brit Luke Donald who keeps hold of the top spot for a 35th week.
