Garcia moves to 7th in World Rankings

Sergio Garcia finished as runner-up to Tiger Woods Sunday for the first time since their memorable duel at the 1999 PGA Championship and with the second-place finish at the Memorial, Garcia jumped three spots to seventh in the latest World Golf Rankings.

Woods, who became the first player to win the same tournament in three consecutive seasons since Tom Watson captured the Byron Nelson Classic from 1978-80, titled for the fourth time in five starts and remained well ahead in first.

Phil Mickelson held on to second followed by Ernie Els and Vijay Singh. David Duval, who did not play in the Memorial as he gears up for a run at his first major title two weeks from now at the U.S. Open, kept his fifth ranking followed by Lee Westwood at six.

Garcia, in seventh, was followed by Davis Love III, who has not played competitively in a month as he rests a neck injury.

Colin Montgomerie dropped two to nine and Darren Clarke fell one to round out the top-10. Hal Sutton stayed 11th with Canadian Mike Weir climbing one to 12. JimFu

Michael Campbell dipped three places to 15, followed by Thomas Bjorn, Nick Price and David Toms.

Argentina's Angel Cabrera went from 22nd to 19th this week and Ireland's Padraig Harrington returned to the top-20 after falling to 21st last week.

Sweden's Jesper Parnevik and Mark Calcavecchia, who battled each other down the stretch at this year's Honda Classic, fell out of the top-20.
