Olazabal returns to world top 50

Spain's Jose Maria Olazabal has returned to the world's top 50, following his one-shot victory in the $700,000 Hong Kong Open.

The twice U.S. Masters champion, who finished with three straight birdies to hold off the challenge of Australia's Adam Scott and Norway's Henrik Bjornstad, climbs 11 places to 47th in this week's official world rankings.

The in-form Spaniard, who finished joint-second in Taiwan in the previous week's Asian Open, closed with a superb 64 at the Hong Kong Golf Club for a 72-hole total of 22-under-par 262.

Scott, whose third-place finish in Hong Kong secured him an invitation to next year's U.S. Masters at Augusta, moves to a career-high 49 in the world.

In the only changes in the world's top 10, Spaniard Sergio Garcia and Davis Love III trade places at six and five respectively while Fiji's Vijay Singh, now eight, and American David Toms, now seven, also exchange positions.

Garcia won the Sun City Golf Challenge on Sunday after edging out world number four Ernie Els at the first hole of a sudden-death playoff but the event does not count on the world ranking calendar.

Lower down the global pecking order, Katsumasa Miyamoto breaks into the top 100 at 94 after his one-shot victory on Sunday in the season-ending Nippon Series JT Cup on the Japan Golf Tour.
