Garcia moves back into world top 10

Sergio Garcia's first PGA Tour win at the Colonial this past weekend moved the Spaniard six places to 10th in this week's World Golf Rankings.

Tiger Woods captured the Deutsche Bank - SAP Open TPC of Europe over the weekend and remained well ahead of Phil Mickelson for the top spot. Mickelson could have edged closer to the World No. 1 but once again faltered down the stretch to lose by two in Fort Worth.

Ernie Els, who is at the end of a two-week stint on the European Tour, held on to third, but there was plenty of movement behind him.

David Duval and Vijay Singh each moved up one place to fourth and fifth, respectively. Lee Westwood dropped two notches for sixth place.

Colin Montgomerie, the three-time defending champion of the Volvo PGA Championship that starts on Friday, kept his seventh position this week. Davis Love III, who has taken the last two weeks off with a neck injury, stayed in eighth followed by Darren Clarke.

No. 10 Garcia shot a final-round 63 to make up five shots and gave the 20- year-old his third professional win worldwide since turning pro in 1999.

Hal Sutton and Mike Weir each dipped one place to 11th and 12th, while Tom Lehman jumped two to 13th.

Jim Furyk fell two spots to No. 14 while Michael Campbell, who finished second behind Woods in Germany, climbed up to 15th. Thomas Bjorn went from 14th to 16th this week.

Nick Price backed up four places this week to 17, while David Toms fell one notch to No. 18. Jesper Parnevik and Padraig Harrington each jumped a spot to 19 and 20, knocking Mark Calcavecchia out of the top-20.
