Bradley rockets past Tiger
Keegan Bradley has rocketed from 108th to 29th on the world rankings ladder – four rungs ahead of Tiger Woods.
US PGA rookie Keegan Bradley has rocketed from 108th to 29th on the World Rankings ladder on the strength of his great fightback victory in the PGA Championship on Sunday and joins the growing list of those now ahead of Tiger Woods.
Former number one Woods slid three more rungs to 33rd, with his missed cut in Atlanta to see himself being overtaken not only by Bradley, but also by Dane Anders Hansen – now a career-best 23rd after his third-place finish – and 18-year-old Italian whizz kid Matteo Manassero.
At the top end of the Rankings list, Steve Stricker has edged into the World No 3 spot at the expense of German Martin Kaymer, who missed the cut in the defence of his PGA title.
Stricker is now the leading American on the list ahead of Phil Mickelson at No 6.
