Thumbnail image for holmes.jpgTiger Woods' void on the PGA Tour is going to effect anyone and everyone in professional golf, including former UK golfer J.B. Holmes.

In the absence of Woods, Holmes has skyrocketed to No. 11 in ESPN.com's golf power rankings. ESPN.com has put together a very open (and tentative) rankings of the world's top 20 players, without Woods, of course.

ESPN.com makes sure to note that the rankings aren't necessarily a list of the world's most talented players, only a compilation of the the hottest teams. It's also a list of people they believe are on the verge of a big 2010 without Tiger.

Holmes currently ranks 11th on the PGA Tour money list with $971,905. The former UK star has notched two top-10 finishes in four starts this season.

Holmes has two career victories on the PGA Tour, both coming at the FBR Open. He played at UK from 2002-05.

Holmes, the 2005 Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, was posted seven birdies and one eagle on the day. The eagle was a score of two on the par-4 eighth hole. The native of Campbellsville, Ky., native started on the 10th hole scoring a 4-under par. On the final nine holes of the day, Holmes shot 3-under-par. 

Holmes, a member of the 2005 SEC Championship team, has played brilliant golf in 2010, finishing in the top 30 in both events he has played in. Last weekend, Holmes finished tied for third at the Northern Trust Open, shooting a 4-under-par for the final round and ending the tournament at 13-under-par.

Holmes, consistently one of the longest golfers off the tee in the PGA, is averaging 292.9 yards per drive this season, good enough for 11th on the tour. Holmes currently is 21st in the FedEx Cup standings.
