Woods up to World No2 ranking after Brit Open

Despite Tiger Woods yet again missing out on a 15th major at the British Open on the weekend, his tied third place did allow him some small consolation - a jump up to No.2 in the world rankings, his highest spot in the last few years.

Woods's finish at Royal Lytham was his best in a major since the runner-up spot at the 2009 PGA Championship behind Korea's Y.E. Yang, and crowns quite the turn around since September 25 2011 when he threatened to drift out of the top 60 ranked players.

Three PGA Tour wins later (Bay Hill, Memorial and AT&T National) and improved performances in the last two major championships have seen Woods' stock rising.
"I finally feel like I'm really healthy. And I've got my pop back in my swing. So I'm hitting the ball distances I know I can," said Woods, scheduled to play next at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational from Aug. 2-5 at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.

"Unfortunately, when I get out here with a little bit of adrenalin, it goes a little bit further, too. It's a combination of having my strength and my speed back, at the same time playing tournament golf. It's not that far off."
