Tiger Woods stays top of world rankings

Tiger Woods makes a birdie attempt on the ninth hole during the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 25, 2013 in Orlando, Florida. Woods stayed top of the world rankings following Rory McIlroy's failure to win the Houston Open.

The 37-year-old American returned to the top last week after an absence of two and a half years, replacing the 23-year-old Irishman, who has struggled with his game this year following a change of clubs and ball in the close season.

Woods will go into next week's Masters Tournament at Augusta National with back-to-back wins boosting his confidence, while McIlroy will take part in the Texas Open in another bid to win for the first time this year.
