OWGR Update: Despite win, Woods remains No. 4 in the ranking


Despite winning for the third time this season at the AT&T National, Tiger Woods did not improve from No. 4 in the latest Official World Golf Ranking.

In fact, none of the top 10 in the ranking changed last week. Luke Donald remains No. 1, leading Rory McIlroy by 1.15 points. Lee Westwood is third, just .39 points ahead of Woods. Webb Simpson, Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar, Jason Dufner, Justin Rose and Hunter Mahan round out the top 10.

AT&T National runner-up Bo Van Pelt moved up, from 32nd to 24th. Third-place finisher Adam Scott went to No. 12 from 16th. Billy Hurley III, part of a group tied for fourth place, gained 160 spots to No. 279. Seung-yul Noh, also T-4 at Congressional CC, cracked the top 100, moving up 20 places to 99th.

Jamie Donaldson, who took his first European Tour title at the Irish Open at Royal Portrush, improved to 63rd from No. 116. Irishman Padraig Harrington finished T-7, allowing him to move up nine spots to No. 60.
