Phil Mickelson held his second position, followed by British Open champion David Duval. Ernie Els failed to win worldwide for the first time since 1992 but he remained in fourth place this week.

Reigning PGA Champion David Toms jumped one spot to No. 7 this week, dropping Fiji's Vijay Singh to eighth.
