Weekley on the Cusp of Top 50 in Rankings


Boo Weekley chipped in for pars at the 17th and 18th holes Monday to win the Verizon Heritage, edging Ernie Els for his first PGA TOUR victory and jumping 60 places to No. 55 in this week's Official World Golf Ranking.
Further up, the rankings changed little.
No. 1 Tiger Woods increased his lead on second-ranked Jim Furyk from 12.18 average points to 12.46 points. Behind them, the following nine players also held onto their spots from last week.
Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Els, Henrik Stenson, Vijay Singh, Retief Goosen, Geoff Ogilvy, Padraig Harrington and Luke Donald remained in positions 3-11.
Paul Casey moved up one place to No. 12, dropping Trevor Immelman to 13th, but behind them the remainder of the top 20 looked the same from a week ago.
Sergio Garcia, Masters champion Zach Johnson, Charles Howell III, Nick O'Hern, Stuart Appleby, David Toms and Robert Allenby filled positions 14-20.
