Rankings boost for May

Bob May, the man who came close to denying Tiger Woods victory in the U.S. PGA championship, has had his efforts rewarded with a leap up the world rankings.

American May climbed 18 places to 30th in the rankings after his play-off defeat by Woods on Sunday.

Woods, who recorded his third successive major championship victory at Valhalla, Kentucky, will lead the U.S. team in their Presidents Cup matchplay competition against the International Team in October.

The 10 leading international players in the rankings have been confirmed to represent the International team.

They will be led by South African Ernie Els, second in the world rankings.

International Team captain Peter Thomson and U.S. team captain Ken Venturi will announce their two additional picks on Monday.
