With Victory Mahan Moves Up in Rankings

RSS

Hunter Mahan won the Travelers Championship on Sunday and moved up 83 places to No. 87 in the latest Official World Golf Ranking.
 
At the top of the rankings, little changed.
 
Tiger Woods, of course, remained the No. 1 golfer in the world. The new father has withdrawn already from this week's Buick Open, where he would have been the defending champion.
 
Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Adam Scott, Ernie Els, Vijay Singh, Henrik Stenson, Geoff Ogilvy and Luke Donald held onto positions 2-9. Retief Goosen and Padraig Harrington flip-flopped spots for the third straight week, with Goosen bumping Harrington from the No. 10 position.
 
Harrington was followed at 11 by Sergio Garcia, Rory Sabbatini, Masters champion Zach Johnson, U.S. Open winner Angel Cabrera, Paul Casey, Trevor Immelman, David Toms, Justin Rose and K.J. Choi to round out the top 20.
 
Sabbatini, Cabrera and Toms all received bumps this week, while Johnson, Immelman, Rose and Choi lost ground from a week ago.
 
Niclas Fasth won the BMW International Open on the European Tour and moved up six places to 22nd. Fasth was coming off a fourth-place finish behind Cabrera at the U.S. Open.
