Monty Makes Players With Bump in World Rankings

World RankingsColin Montgomerie won for the first time in 16 months at the Caltex Masters and with the victory the Scotsman moved up nine places to 41st in this week's Official World Golf Rankings.
Montgomerie made the top-50 and is now eligible for the field at this week's Players Championship. Any player who was otherwise not eligible and is in the top-50 this week will be able to tee it up at Sawgrass.
Chad Campbell won for the second time on tour Sunday at the Bay Hill Invitational. He jumped up five rungs to No. 10 and became the 58th player in history to hold a spot in the top-10 of the World Rankings.
Tiger Woods was unable to make history and become the first player to win the same event five years in a row on the PGA Tour with his tie for 46th at the Bay Hill Invitational. Woods remained firmly in first place for the 311th week.
Vijay Singh, Ernie Els, Davis Love III and Mike Weir held on to their spots from last week. Jim Furyk, out of action with a wrist injury, stayed in sixth place and Retief Goosen remained one spot behind him.
Stuart Appleby squandered a four-shot lead on the back nine at Bay Hill but moved up one notch to eighth. Phil Mickelson fell one place to accommodate Appleby's move and stay one ahead of Campbell.
David Toms, Kenny Perry, Padraig Harrington and Darren Clarke all fell a spot each with Campbell's move up the poll. Scott Verplank leaped two spots up to No. 15.
Jonathan Kaye fell two to 16th, while Fredrik Jacobson dipped one to 17th. Adam Scott rose eight notches to No. 18, Shigeki Maruyama climbed two to 19th and Robert Allenby rounded out the top-20 after falling two places.
Nick Price and Chris DiMarco fell out of the top-20.
