Henrik Stenson chased World No. 1 Adam Scott to no avail, but passed Tiger Woods in the OWGR for the No. 2 spot – while Rory McIlroy's win at the BMW PGA Championship in England bumped him up four spots to No. 6 this week.

Jason Dufner's runner-up finish to Scott in a playoff at the PGA Tour's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial boosted his standing from No. 22 to No. 15, making him the big climber among the top 20. Graeme McDowell dropped three spots.

Woods remains idle while rehabbing from microdiscectomy surgery to repair a back injury.
