Yang soars in world rankings Tiger still No 1


Y.E. Yang's victory at the Honda Classic on Sunday, his first on the PGA Tour, vaulted the Korean 313 places to No. 147 in the world rankings.
Ahead in the rankings, little changed as many of the top players took the week off.
The first eight positions were occupied by the same players who held them last week, with No. 1 Tiger Woods followed by Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, Geoff Ogilvy, Padraig Harrington, Vijay Singh, Henrik Stenson and Robert Karlsson.
Kenny Perry moved up one spot to No. 9, dropping Camilo Villegas to 10th, while Anthony Kim, Lee Westwood and Paul Casey held onto the next three slots.
Steve Stricker was up one space to 14th, kicking Ernie Els to 15th, and Rory McIlroy, Jim Furyk, Stewart Cink, Adam Scott and Mike Weir rounded out the top 20 in the same positions as last week.
