2014 Official World Golf Ranking – Feb. 3 – Stadler’s big move


SHARE THIS STORY

It took longer than he would have wanted, but Kevin Stadler is now a winner on the PGA Tour. A back-and-forth back nine with Bubba Watson and several other contenders, none who seemed to want to step up to win the tournament, ended with Stadler's 72nd-hole par as the decisive stroke to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The win gives Stadler a trip to the Masters, where he will join his father, '82 champion Craig, to become the first father-son pair to play in the same Masters.

A world away in Dubai, it appeared to be Rory McIlroy's championship to lose at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. McIlroy stumbled in the final round at Emirates G.C., however, opening the door for defending champion Stephen Gallacher to become the first player in the quarter-century history of the event to repeat.

Here's a look at the Official World Golf Ranking top 50:
