With victory Johnson soars in world rankings


Thanks to his rain-shortened win at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Dustin Johnson jumped 74 places to No. 45 in this week's world rankings.
There was no change to the top 14 from last week. Tiger Woods was again No. 1 followed by Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington, Vijay Singh, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson, Robert Karlsson, Geoff Ogilvy, Camilo Villegas, Kenny Perry, Anthony Kim, Lee Westwood, Ernie Els and Jim Furyk.
Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy exchanged places with Rose up one to 15th. Mike Weir, who finished second behind Johnson, climbed seven spots to 17th this week.
Adam Scott slid one to 18, while Martin Kaymer remained steady in 19th. Steve Stricker dropped two notches to 20 and K.J. Choi fell out of the top 20 as he dipped two to 22nd.
Anthony Kang won on the European Tour and snapped an eight-year victory drought in the process. That win helped him soar 173 spots to No. 145 in the newest rankings.
