2016 Official World Golf Ranking Feb. 15: Mickelson to top 20, Taylor to No. 100

Phil Mickelson may not have won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, but his solo second-place finish at the old Crosby Clambake allowed him to jump nine spots in the Official World Golf Ranking, going from 29th to 20th.

Vaughn Taylor, who won for the first time in nearly 11 years on Sunday, moved from 447th in the world to No. 100, on the nose.

With his T-11 finish at Pebble, Jason Day overtook Rory McIlroy for the No. 2 spot.

Charl Schwartzel won the European Tour's Tshwane Open by eight shots in his home country of South Africa and moved up from 43rd to 31st.

Remember, the top 50 in the world as of the week before the Masters, if not already exempt, earn an invite to the first major of the year.
