Padraig Harrington and Rory Sabbatini exchanged spots, with the British Open champ Harrington up to 11th. Henrik Stenson and Stewart Cink held steady in the 13th and 14th spots.
Immelman moved into 15th place and knocked Sergio Garcia, Luke Donald, Angel Cabrera, Lee Westwood, Zach Johnson and Aaron Baddeley all down one notch with Baddeley dropping from the top 20 to 21st.
