Bernhard Langer returns to world top 20

Bernhard Langer has moved back into the top 20 on the world rankings after sharing the Volvo Masters title with Colin Montgomerie.

The experienced German has improved 14 places on the rankings announced on Monday and lies in 17th spot, while Montgomerie moves up three places into 11th.

The two players agreed to share the Volvo Masters title on Sunday when poor light made it impossible for them to continue their playoff at the European Tour's season-ending event.

Having each finished at three-under-par 281 at Valderrama, the Ryder Cup stalwarts were still level after two holes of their sudden-death playoff in fading light.

Bradley Dredge continued his late-season surge up the rankings after claiming third at Valderrama, his third consecutive top-five finish on the European Tour.

He was two shots outside the playoff on Sunday and now lies 71st after moving up 20 places from last week.

Dredge has improved 167 places on his position at the end of last season and is now the highest ranked Welshman in the world.

There was no change to the top 10 with Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els occupying the top three places.
