Love Moves Back into Top-20 in Rankings


Davis Love III broke a three-year winless streak on Sunday at the Chrysler Classic of Greensboro. His 19th PGA TOUR victory brought the American back into the top 20 of the Official World Golf Rankings.
Love, who was left off his first Ryder or Presidents Cup team since 1993 last month, came in at 19th this week. His win in Greensboro was his first since The International in 2003, when he was third in the world.
Tiger Woods remained comfortably in first, followed by Jim Furyk, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott and Vijay Singh. There was no change in the next five as well with Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia and U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy rounding out the top 10.
Henrik Stenson stayed in 11th place, followed by Padraig Harrington, who moved up eight places to 12th after capturing the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship over the weekend.
Trevor Immelman and David Howell each fell a place to 13th and 14th, respectively. Chris DiMarco held on to No. 15 this week.
David Toms and Paul Casey both remained in their places from last week with the American coming in 16th and the Englishman taking 17th. Colin Montgomerie dropped four rungs to 18th, followed by Love. Jose Maria Olazabal sank two to round out the top 20.
Tim Clark fell out of the top 20 to accommodate Love's move.
