Austin Leaps 92 Spots in World Ranking

Woody Austin jumped 92 places to No. 81 in the latest Official World Golf Ranking following his win Sunday at the Stanford St. Jude Championship.
In Europe, Richard Green's victory at the BA-CA Open moved the Australian back into the world top 50 at No. 37, a jump of 26 places from last week.
Little changed in the top 20.
Tiger Woods, of course, remained the No. 1 player, where he was followed by Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Adam Scott, Ernie Els, Henrik Stenson, Vijay Singh, Geoff Ogilvy, Luke Donald and Retief Goosen to round out the top 10.
Stenson moved up a spot to sixth, dropping Singh to seventh. Goosen slipped into the 10th spot after a week spent on the outside of the top 10, replacing Padraig Harrington, who dipped to 11th.
Harrington was followed by Sergio Garcia, Zach Johnson, Rory Sabbatini, Trevor Immelman, Paul Casey, K.J. Choi, Stewart Cink, Justin Rose and Charles Howell III to finish the top 20.
Johnson moved into the 13th spot this week, dropping Sabbatini to 14th.
