World Rankings round up for March 28th

Hal Sutton won the Players Championship for the second time to move to No.5 in the latest Official World Golf Ranking. This is Hal's highest World Ranking position since he was No.4 on June 22 1986 after finishing second in the Atlanta Golf Classic, shortly after the World Ranking had been first launched in April 1986. At that time Hal was the highest placed United States golfer in the ranking having already won the Phoenix Open and Memorial Tournament that year and the St. Jude Memphis and Southwest Classics in the previous twelve months. Hal won his first Players Championship title along with the PGA Championship in 1983.

World No.1 Tiger Woods' second place finish extends his Official World Golf Ranking records with 1119.11 ranking points for an average of 23.81 points per event extending last week's record totals of 1075.11 and 22.87 respectively.

Ernie Els falls out of the top 10 this week as he continues to lose points from good performances at the beginning of 1998 & 1999, he has now lost more points this year than any other player - 166.

Roger Chapman's victory in the Brazil Rio de Janeiro 500 Years Open was his first in nineteen years on the European Tour. He defeated Padraig Harrington at the second extra hole of sudden death and is now 254th in the latest Official World Golf Ranking.
