Bradley reaches career high in world rankings


Keegan Bradley moved to a career-high 15th place in the latest Official World Golf Ranking, following his victory in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Bradley began the week 28th in the standings. He stood 108th a year ago at this time, prior to his breakthrough victory at the PGA Championship.

J.J. Henry, winner of the opposite-field Reno-Tahoe Open, climbed 85 spots to 134th, while Ben Kohles, who won his second professional event in as many starts on the Tour, shot up to 259th.

Luke Donald continues to lead the rankings. He is 1.14 points ahead of Tiger Woods. There was little movement in the top 10, with only Bubba Watson (now sixth) and Adam Scott (seventh) flipping spots.

Other notable movements included Steve Stricker going to 11th from 14th following his co-runner-up finish at Firestone. Alexandre Roche finished second to Henry in the modified Stableford format and rocketed 412 spots to 428th.
