Adam Scott won the Honda Classic on Sunday for his first victory since the 2014 Colonial Invitational. The win put Scott back in a familiar place – the top 10 of the Official World Golf Rankings.

Scott moved up from No. 13 to No. 9 thanks to his win and a T-2 finish two weeks ago at Riviera. It's his highest ranking since last May. The former world No. 1 knocked Patrick Reed back one place to No. 10.

The rest of the top 10 remains the same. Jordan Spieth's at No. 1 followed by Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose and Dustin Johnson.

Sergio Garcia finished second at PGA National, and he's also close to cracking the top 10 again. Garcia is now No. 12 after starting last week at No. 19.

Graeme McDowell continued his resurgence up the rankings with a fifth-place finish at the Honda. He jumped from No. 73 to 55. He'll likely move up again after getting a late invite to this week's no-cut event at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. McDowell qualified for Doral by being inside the top 10 in the FedEx Cup standings.

Also keep an eye on the 64th spot as qualifying for the WGC Match Play ends on March 14th. Right now European Ryder Cup star Ian Poulter is at No. 64. Other names on the outside looking in include Gary Woodland (No. 69), Jason Dufner (71), Webb Simpson (74), Hunter Mahan (87), Keegan Bradley (89) and Luke Donald (90).
