Scott Hoch returns to world's top 50

Scott Hoch's first win in nearly four years propelled him 11 spots to 43rd in the latest World Golf Rankings. Hoch, 45, posted a one-shot victory at the Greater Greensboro Classic for his ninth title in 22 years on the PGA Tour.

Number-one ranked Tiger Woods, who has been idle since capturing his sixth career major championship at the Masters three weeks ago, is still comfortably ahead of Phil Mickelson, who is expected to play in the upcoming Compaq Classic of New Orleans.

The next six players also held their positions from last week, with Ernie Els, Lee Westwood, Colin Montgomerie, Vijay Singh, David Duval and Davis Love III rounding out the top-eight.

Els, Duval and Love are all in the field for the Compaq Classic. Westwood, whose lone PGA Tour triumph came in the New Orleans event in 1998, is still taking time off since the birth of his first child.

Northern Ireland's Darren Clarke jumped up one spot to ninth after collecting his first career win in Japan at the Chunichi Crowns. Houston Open winner Hal Sutton, who tied for 24th in his title defense at Greensboro, dropped back to the 10th position.

Canadian lefthander Mike Weir moved up from 13th to 11th place, one spot ahead of Jim Furyk. Jesper Parnevik of Sweden fell two spots to 13th.
