A rehabbing Tiger Woods remained No. 1, while Phil Mickelson stayed in second. Adam Scott climbed two places to third, knocking Ernie Els and Steve Stricker down to fourth and fifth respectively.
Geoff Ogilvy held steady at six, while Jim Furyk and K.J. Choi exchanged spots with the American up to seventh. The next three -- Vijay Singh, Justin Rose and Padraig Harrington -- remained ninth through 11th.
Stewart Cink moved up two to 12th, bumping Rory Sabbatini to 13 and Henrik Stenson to 14. Trevor Immelman held steady in 15th.
Kim was followed by Aaron Baddeley, Sergio Garcia and Luke Donald, who all fell one place apiece, while Lee Westwood rounded out the top 20 again.
Angel Cabrera dropped two from 19th to 21st this week.
