With his Sunday comeback at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, Luke Donald won the PGA Tour money list, Vardon Trophy, PGA of America Player of the Year award and increased his lead in the Official World Golf Ranking over Lee Westwood.
Donald is now 3.27 points ahead of Westwood, who leads Rory McIlroy by .18 points.
Donald has earned 500.6 world ranking points this year. The two next best earners, McIlroy and Webb Simpson, have earned 593 points combined.
The top nine were unchanged, but Phil Mickelson dropped out of the top 10. He was ousted by Webb Simpson, whose T-6 allowed him to improve two spots. Simpson began the year at No. 213.
Sergio Garcia moved up 18 spots to 31st in the ranking after his first victory in three years at the Castello Masters on his boyhood course in Spain.
Despite winning his own tournament in Korea, K.J. Choi moved up just one spot to 13th. The runner-up Noh Seung-yul, however, cracked the top 100 by moving nine spots to 95th.
Idle until the Australian Open, Tiger Woods remained at No. 55 in the ranking. He has lost the second most points of any player in 2011, behind Westwood.
