Tiger Holding Firm at No 1

World RankingsWith the 'silly season' getting into full swing this week with The Skins Game, there was little movement at the top of the Official World Golf Rankings.
Tiger Woods and many of the top players in the world played in the Presidents Cup over the weekend and saw the event end in a tie. Woods, the No. 1 player in the world, and Ernie Els, the third-ranked player, halved their three playoff holes to create the tie.
Vijay Singh, who went 3-2 at the Presidents Cup, remained the second-ranked player. Davis Love III stayed fourth in the rankings followed by Jim Furyk, Mike Weir and Retief Goosen.
David Toms, who struggled to a 1-4 record at the Presidents Cup, climbed to the No. 8 spot in the rankings, as Kenny Perry slipped one spot to ninth.
Padraig Harrington stayed put in the 10th slot, while Darren Clarke, Nick Price, Phil Mickelson, Chad Campbell and Stuart Appleby remained 11th through 15th.
Fredrik Jacobson inched up one space to 16th as Justin Leonard dropped one to the 17th position. Robert Allenby, K.J. Choi and Brad Faxon round out the top-20.
Thomas Bjorn, who won the Dunlop Phoenix event on the Japan Tour this weekend, jumped up 10 spaces to No. 22 in the latest rankings. Lee Westwood's recovery continued as he finished third behind Bjorn and moved to 61st in the latest rankings.
