Choi Busts Back into Top-50 in Rankings


K.J. Choi claimed his fourth PGA TOUR crown on Sunday at the Chrysler Championship, a win that helped him leap 27 places to No. 28 in the latest Official World Golf Rankings.
Jeev Milkha Singh won the final event on the 2006 European Tour schedule, the Volvo Masters. Singh started the year ranked 376th in the world, but this win helped him climb another 70 places to 77th.
The top 20 from last week had little change. Tiger Woods was again followed by Jim Furyk, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott, Vijay Singh, Retief Goosen, Ernie Els, Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia and Geoff Ogilvy.
Nos. 11 through 18 also remained unchanged with Padraig Harrington coming in 11th, followed by Henrik Stenson, Trevor Immelman, David Howell, Paul Casey, Davis Love III, David Toms and Colin Montgomerie.
The lone change in the top 20 was Chris DiMarco inching up one space to 19th. To make room for DiMarco, Spain's Jose Maria Olazabal slipped one to 20th.
