Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Rory McIlroy begins his second stint atop
the world rankings this week after Luke Donald failed to finish in the top
eight at the Heritage.
Donald needed the high finish to stay at No. 1, but a tie for 37th at Harbour
Town dropped the Englishman to second. Lee Westwood, Masters champion Bubba
Watson and Hunter Mahan remained in their places.
Martin Kaymer tied for seventh at the Malaysian Open and inched up one to
sixth. Steve Stricker fell one to No. 7, while Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and
Justin Rose rounded out the top 10.
Adam Scott held on to 11th, but Louis Oosthuizen, who won the Malaysian Open
just a week after his playoff loss to Watson at Augusta National, vaulted up
seven to 12th.
Oosthuizen's good friend Charl Schwartzel, Webb Simpson and Matt Kuchar each
dropped one to polish off the top 15.
Dustin Johnson and Jason Day switched places this week with the American 16th
and the Australian down to 17th. Graeme McDowell sank three to No. 18 and Bill
Haas dipped one to 19th. Keegan Bradley kept the 20th spot.
Carl Pettersson earned his fifth PGA Tour title Sunday at the Heritage and
shot up 33 to 35th.
