Big jumps for Perez Quiros in world rankings


Alvaro Quiros won the Qatar Masters on Sunday and in the process vaulted up 46 spots in this week's Official World Golf Rankings.
Quiros moved to 28th this week. It will be almost impossible for him to fall down quickly enough so he should receive invitations to the two upcoming World Golf Championships and the Masters.
Pat Perez finally broke through with his first PGA Tour win at the 50th Bob Hope Classic. He jumped up 31 places to 59th.
The top five remained the same with Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh.
Mercedes-Benz champion Geoff Ogilvy is sixth, while Henrik Stenson, who shared second in Qatar, climbed four rungs to seventh. Robert Karlsson, Anthony Kim and Camilo Villegas all fell to accommodate Stenson's rise.
Lee Westwood fell out of the top 10 to 11th. Ernie Els, Jim Furyk, Adam Scott and Kenny Perry rounded out the top 15 for the second week in a row.
Steve Stricker, Stewart Cink, K.J. Choi and Martin Kaymer remained in spots 16-19. Mike Weir, who shared third place at the Bob Hope, moved up five to No. 20.
Justin Rose fell out of the top 20 this week and is 22nd.
