No Changes in the World Golf Top-10

RSS

With most of golf's top players out of action this past weekend, all but three retained their positions in the top-20 of the latest World Golf Rankings.
 
There was no movement in the top-10. Tiger Woods stayed at No. 1, for the 100th straight week, while Phil Mickelson and British Open winner David Duval remained at two and three.
 
Woods and Duval went head-to-head Monday night in the Battle at Bighorn, the third installment of the prime-time, match-play series that has featured Woods. There was a co-ed twist this year, however, as Woods teamed with Swedish star Annika Sorenstam to defeat Duval with Australian ace Karrie Webb in 19 holes.
 
Vijay Singh, Davis Love III, and Sergio Garcia, who beat Woods in last year's made-for-TV showdown, stayed in their spots at fourth, fifth and sixth, while Darren Clarke,Lee Westwood, and Colin Montgomerie rounded out the top-10.
 
Mike Weir, Hal Sutton and Thomas Bjorn kept their positions right outside the top-10 at 11th, 12th, and 13th, respectively.
 
Michael Campbell remained in 14th place, followed by Padraig Harrington in 15th and Jim Furyk in 16th.
 
Nick Price moved up two spots to 17th, and as a result U.S. Open winner Retief Goosen and the colorful Jesper Parnevik dropped spots to 18th and 19th. Tom Lehman remained in 20th.
 
Bernhard Langer, who won the Dutch Open for his first victory in four years, jumped to 27th.
 
Twenty-two-year-old David Gossett entered the top-100 after obtaining his first PGA Tour win at the John Deere Classic on Sunday. The 1999 U.S. Amateur champion currently holds the 76th position in this week's rankings.
