Furyk moves up to World No.3

U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk has climbed to a career-high number three in the world rankings following his two-shot victory at the Buick Open on Sunday.

Furyk, ranked sixth last week, fired a four-under-par 68 to hold off a late charge from world number one Tiger Woods, whose closing 66 left him tied for second with Australia's Geoff Ogilvy (65), Briny Baird (66) and Chris DiMarco (67).

However Woods remains well clear at the top of the global pecking order, extending his record run at number one to 207 consecutive weeks.

DiMarco moves up three spots to 14th in the world, Baird climbs into the top 100 at 84 and Ogilvy becomes the 11th highest-ranked Australasian, rising to 101.

In the only other changes to the world's top 10, Fiji's Vijay Singh (four), U.S. Masters champion Mike Weir (five) and Davis Love III (six) have all been dislodged one place by the improving Furyk.

On the European Tour, Australia's Adam Scott clinched the Scandinavian Masters by two strokes at the Barseback Golf and Country Club in Sweden on Sunday and vaults 14 spots to 34th in the world.

On the Japan Golf Tour, Taichi Teshima won the Aiful Cup at Golf Club Twinfields on Sunday and moves up to 128th.
