Patrick Reed moved up 28 spots in the latest Official World Golf Ranking following his second career PGA Tour victory.

Reed's win Sunday at the Humana Challenge has him at No. 41, the highest ranking of his career.

Ryan Palmer improved 51 spots to 71st after a runner-up finish in La Quinta, Calif. He re-enters the top 100 for the first time since being ranked 93rd after last year's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Zach Johnson remained at sixth after notching his 11th top-10 finish in his last 14 world-ranked events.

Pablo Larrazabal, winner of the European Tour's Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, moved up 50 spots, from 103rd to 53rd. The top 50 in the OWGR the week prior to the Masters earn invitations to Augusta if not already in the field.

Phil Mickelson's runner-up finish in Abu Dhabi moved him to fourth, bumping Justin Rose down a spot to fifth. Jason Day also entered the top 10, replacing Sergio Garcia, who fell to 11th. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
