R-Mac up to 2nd, Tiger down to 58th

Home

On a day when Rory McIlroy has risen to a career best No 2 in the World, Tiger Woods has tumbled to No 58.

A little under a year after losing the No 1 spot to Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods has tumbled to No 58th in the world as he heads into this week’s Australian Open, ironically the last event he won two years ago.

Further up the order, Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy, who birdied the final hole to finish fourth in Sunday’s WGC-HSBC Champions in China, has moved to a career-high second place in the Rankings list where he has leapfrogged Lee Westwood.

England’s Luke Donald, though presently competitively inactive while waiting for his wife Diane to have their second child in Chicago, retains the No 1 spot

Already the winner of the US Money List title for 2011, Donald also continues to head the European Tour’s Race To Dubai money list by a little under a million Euro.

Martin Kaymer, who came hammering through at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai on Sunday, firing five birdies in six holes on the closing stretch to come from five shots back at the start of the round with a winning 9-under-par 63, has hoisted himself back into 4th place on the Rankings list in place of the USA’s Dustin Johnson – and it means that once again Europe hold the Top four places in the Rankings.

Johnson and Steve Stricker of the USA fill the next two places on the list with Australians Jason Day and Adam Scott in 7th and 8th places

Two more Americans, Matt Kuchar and the belly-putter wielding Webb Simpson are 9th and 10th, giving the US and Europe four places each in the top 10.

Phil Mickeslson, the long-time No 2 to Woods, is now down to No 11.
