Bryant to 24th Tiger Closes Out Season at No 1


Bart Bryant soared 20 places to No. 24 in the official world golf rankings this week thanks to his six-stroke win at the Tour Championship over the weekend.
Despite the strong field in Atlanta for the Tour Championship, there was no movement in the top-20 this week.
Tiger Woods stretched his lead over No. 2 Vijay Singh to 7.3 average points and is atop the world rankings for the 364th week. Phil Mickelson, Retief Goosen and the injured Ernie Els close out the top-five.
Sergio Garcia remained sixth this week with Jim Furyk, Adam Scott, Chris DiMarco and Kenny Perry right behind him.
Angel Cabrera held on to the 11th position. David Toms remained 12th and will soon take time off to have surgery to correct the heart issue that forced him to withdraw from the 84 Lumber Classic in September.
The next three players are European -- No. 13 Luke Donald, No. 14 Padraig Harrington and No. 15 Colin Montgomerie. They were followed by Michael Campbell, Davis Love III, Paul McGinley, David Howell and Darren Clarke.
Heath Slocum climbed 39 places to No. 101 this week after his victory at the Southern Farm Bureau Classic.
