Mahan reaches career high 12th as Woods retains no. 1 spot
August 9, 2010

Hunter Mahan won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational with a closing 64 for a two-shot victory over Ryan Palmer, his second win of the year after the Phoenix Open. The win takes Mahan to a career high world number 12, a jump of 19 places, and assures him of a place on the US Ryder Cup team.

Tiger Woods retained his world no. 1 spot, despite his worst ever score on the PGA Tour - a 298 total, 18 over par, finishing in a tie for 78th out of 80 - as Lee Westwood retired after two rounds with a calf injury and Phil Mickelson carded a final round 78 to fall back into a tie for 46th.

Bill Lunde won the Turning Stone Resort Championship, the PGA Tour 'additional event' running against the World Golf Championship, and moves up 142 places to world no.220.

The week's other winners were Jhonattan Vegas at the Preferred Health Systems Wichita Open on the Nationwide Tour and Angelo Que at the Worldwide Holdings Selangor Masters on the Asian Tour.
