Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - David Howell won his first European Tour
event in seven years at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on Sunday and
that victory moved him into the top 100 in this week's world golf rankings.
Howell, who defeated Peter Uihlein with a birdie in the second playoff hole to
earn his fifth career victory on the European Tour, jumped up 82 places to sit
at 94th this week.
There were no changes through the top 25 members of the rankings, as the PGA
Tour was off following last week's Tour Championship.
Tiger Woods remained at the top of the rankings and was again followed by Adam
Scott, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose. Woods is in his 651st
week as the world No. 1.
Rory McIlroy, Steve Stricker, Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker and Jason Dufner
again rounded out the top 10.
The next 10 golfers in the rankings were Graeme McDowell, Zach Johnson, Jim
Furyk, Keegan Bradley, Luke Donald, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood,
Charl Schwartzel and Ian Poulter.
Presidents Cup captain's pick Jordan Spieth, Ernie Els, Dustin Johnson, Webb
Simpson and Hunter Mahan rounded out the top 25.
