Jim Furyk was down two places to eighth, Vijay Singh dropped one spot to ninth and Justin Rose was down one place to 10th.
Padraig Harrington, Rory Sabbatini, Henrik Stenson, Stewart Cink, Trevor Immelman, Aaron Baddeley, Sergio Garcia, Luke Donald, Angel Cabrera and Lee Westwood rounded out the top 20 in the same positions they held last week.
