Europe, with four Englishmen, a German and an Ulsterman, now outnumber Americans in the top 10 of the world rankings.

Europe with four Englishmen, a German and a Northern Irishman now outnumber Americans in the top 10 of the world rankings.
Indeed, with England’s Lee Westwood top of the roost, Europeans also outnumber Americans in the top 20 with nine to the USA’s seven.
Ian Poulter, up from 11th to eighth, has joined number one Lee Westwood, Paul Casey (seventh) and Luke Donald (ninth) with his runner-up finish at the Dubai World Championship.
Poulter would have moved ahead of Casey into seventh if he had won his play-off against Robert Karlsson, but lost it at the second extra hole where he incurred a one-shot penalty that is unlikely to have changed the course of a match he already looked like losing.
