Mickelson: On the rise

Mickelson: On the rise

Phil Mickelson's wire-to-wire victory at the Phoenix Open has lifted him back into the world's top 10.

It's the first time since May of last year that the American has been ranked that high, after an indifferent series of results in the second half of last season saw him drop down to 22nd.

Mickelson, who just missed out on a 59 in the opening round in Phoenix, finished four clear of Brandt Snedeker, who was also runner-up to Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines a week earlier.

Snedeker has moved to a career-high sixth in the world following those two performances.

Scotland's Stephen Gallacher leaps from 111th to 60th after making the Omega Dubai Desert Classic only his second success in 404 European Tour starts.

After this week's events the top 64 qualify for the Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona on February 20-24.
