With his fourth worldwide victory in the last two years, Justin Rose is up to No. 6 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

On a marathon day at TPC Louisiana, Rose channeled Steph Curry, played 30 holes in 10 under, and went on to claim his seventh career PGA Tour victory.

The win hopped him over Jason Day (T-4 at Zurich), Dustin Johnson, and Adam Scott, who fell to seventh, eighth and ninth, respectively.

On the other side of the world, Lee Westwood claimed his third Indonesian Masters, moving up from No. 33 to 27, and Japan's Wu Ashun took home his first European Tour victory at the Volvo China Open, leaping from 247th to 126th.

And in the weekly Tiger Woods watch, the former world No. 1 slipped to 116th after another inactive week. Woods will return to competition at The Players Championship, but for now he's sandwiched between Carlos Ortiz and Scott Stallings.

Here is your OWGR top 10 for the week of April 26: 1. Rory McIlroy, 2. Jordan Spieth, 3. Henrik Stenson, 4. Bubba Watson, 5. Jim Furyk, 6. Rose, 7. Day, 8. Johnson, 9. Scott, 10. Sergio Garcia.
