Perry jumps to Number 11 in World Rankings

Red-hot American Kenny Perry has climbed to a career-high number 11 in the world following his two-shot win in the Memorial Tournament at the weekend.
The 42-year-old, who coasted to victory by six strokes at the Colonial one week earlier, is on the best run of his professional career and moves up four spots in the official world rankings.

Perry's points tally of 177.50 during 2003 is the best of any player outside the world's top five and is reflected by his improvement of 17 ranking places so far this year.

Twice U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen, who fired a level-par 72 to finish second on Sunday, returns to the top 100 at number 69 while U.S. Masters champion Mike Weir, third at the Memorial after a closing 65, edges up one spot to fifth in the world.

Tiger Woods, who tied for fourth on Sunday with Fiji's Vijay Singh after a final-round 65 in his first PGA Tour event since the Masters in April, remains well clear at the top of the standings.

British Open champion Ernie Els stays at two, Davis Love III, a triple winner on this year's U.S. Tour, holds on to third place and Singh remains at four.

In the only change this week to the top 10, Weir replaces fellow left-hander Phil Mickelson at five, with Mickelson slipping to six.

On the European Tour, Britain's Ian Poulter completed a wire-to-wire victory at the Welsh Open at Celtic Manor on Sunday and shoots up 30 places into the world's top 100 at 90th.

On the Japan Golf Tour, American Todd Hamilton won the Diamond Cup Tournament at the Oarai Golf Club in Ibaragi and moves up 63 spots to 123rd in the world.
