Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - After a rare Tuesday finish on the PGA
Tour, Dustin Johnson won the weather-shortened Hyundai Tournament of Champions
and jumped 11 spots to No. 12 in this week's world rankings.
Johnson won for the seventh time on the PGA Tour and has at least one victory
in each of the last six years.
Ahead of him, the top seven in the rankings remained the same in the first new
rankings of 2013. Rory McIlroy is the clear No. 1 and was again followed by
Luke Donald, Tiger Woods, Justin Rose, Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen and Lee
Brandt Snedeker took third behind Johnson in Kapalua and moved up two spots to
No. 8 in the new rankings. That bumped Bubba Watson and Jason Dufner down to
ninth and 10th, respectively.
Keegan Bradley tied for fourth in Hawaii and climbed a pair to 11th and was
followed by Johnson. Hawaii runner-up Steve Stricker jumped five to 13th.
Webb Simpson and Ian Poulter both fell three spots to 14th and 15th, while
Charl Schwartzel, Graeme McDowell, Sergio Garcia and Phil Mickelson were down
two notches apiece to Nos. 16-19.
Peter Hanson slipped one spot to 20th. Nick Watney fell out of the top 20 this
week as he dipped from 20th to 21st.
