Jason Day moved to a career-best fourth in the Official World Golf Ranking after his victory Sunday at the WGC-Accenture Match Play.

Day, who moved up from 11th a week ago, had previously reached as high as seventh in the world (February 2012).

The man Day beat in the final at Dove Mountain, Victor Dubuisson, jumped seven spots from 30th to 23rd. Rickie Fowler, who finished third, moved from 56th to 38th, and is now eligible for the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

  • 1. Tiger Woods
  • 2. Adam Scott
  • 3. Henrik Stenson
  • 4. Jason Day
  • 5. Phil Mickelson
  • 6. Justin Rose
  • 7. Zach Johnson
  • 8. Rory McIlroy
  • 9. Sergio Garcia
  • 10. Dustin Johnson

Matt Kuchar now falls out of the top 10, dropping a spot to 11th.
