PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- David Toms solidified his seventh-place ranking in the World Golf Rankings followed his victory at the St. Jude Classic.
 
The victory was Toms' second of the season and ninth in his career on the PGA Tour.
 
Tiger Woods, who will continue his preparation for the 132nd British Open this week at the 100th Western Open, remained firmly entrenched atop the rankings. He was followed by South Africa's Ernie Els, Canadian Mike Weir and Davis Love III, who all held their rankings from last week.
 
Vijay Singh was next at No. 5 while U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk followed at No. 6. Toms came in seventh, followed by Padraig Harrington, the top European in the rankings, who stayed put at the eighth position while Phil Mickelson and Nick Price, who climbed two spots, rounded out the top 10.
 
Kenny Perry fell one position to accommodate Price's move as did Retief Goosen, who dipped one place to No. 12.
 
Justin Leonard, Chris DiMarco and Sergio Garcia stayed in the same place as last week followed by Bob Estes, who jumped up one spot to No. 16. Robert Allenby was next at No. 17 while Jerry Kelly, who will be defending this week at the Western Open, climbed two spaces to No. 18.
 
Scott Verplank held on to the 19th spot in the rankings followed by Scott Hoch, who moved up two positions to No. 20.
