Nick Faldo returns to world top 75

Nick Faldo's final-round, bogey-free 67 at the Volvo PGA Championship gave the Englishman a solo third and moved him into the top-100 in the latest World Golf Rankings.

The six-time major winner had his old caddy, Fanny Sunesson, back on the bag and came close to earning his first win on the European Tour since the 1994 Alfred Dunhill Open. Faldo rose to 72nd in this week's rankings.

Tiger Woods remained in the lead as he gets set to try for three in a row at the Memorial this coming week. Phil Mickelson, who took his eighth top- three finish of the season at the Kemper Open over the weekend, is second followed by Ernie Els in third.

Vijay Singh's seventh-place finish in the Volvo PGA Championship jumped him one spot to fourth, as he switched places with David Duval.

European stars Lee Westwood and Colin Montgomerie held on to the sixth and seventh rankings. Davis Love III, Darren Clarke and Sergio Garcia also held their spots from a week ago and rounded out the top-10.

Hal Sutton stayed in 11th place followed by New Zealand's Michael Campbell, who vaulted three spots to No. 12. Mike Weir, Tom Lehman and Jim Furyk all fell one place to 13th, 14th and 15th, respectively.

Thomas Bjorn and Nick Price are 16 and 17 followed by David Toms and Jesper Parnevik as the four players kept their position from last week.

Mark Calcavecchia climbed one place to round out the top-20 as Irishman Padraig Harrington fell one to 21st.

Frank Lickliter broke out and won his PGA Tour event at the weather-plagued Kemper Open. The victory moved him from 67th to 49th in one week.
