Webb Simpson jumped seven spots in the latest Official World Golf Ranking, from No. 24 to No. 17, following his victory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

It's the highest ranking for Simpson since he was 16th following a T-15 finish at this year's Players Championship. Simpson was ranked fifth right after his 2012 U.S. Open victory. His triumph in Las Vegas was his fourth career PGA Tour title.

Ryo Ishikawa's T-2 finish at TPC Summerlin moved him up 42 spots, from No. 154 to No. 112.

The top 10 again remained unchanged, including the sixth spot, where Rory McIlroy stayed despite his runner-up finish at the Korean Open on the OneAsia Tour.
