Nick Price moves back into worlds top ten

Former world number one Nick Price has returned to the top 10 for the first time in more than three years after a red-hot final round lifted him into second place at the St. Jude Classic on Sunday.

The 46-year-old Zimbabwean, the game's top-ranked player for 44 consecutive weeks until June 11 1995, fired a nine-under-par 62 at the TPC at Southwind to rocket up the last-day leaderboard.

Price's score of 17-under-par 267 was not enough to secure victory, but he managed to hold on to finish alone in second place, three strokes behind winner David Toms.

Three-times major winner Price was previously ranked 10th in the world on May 14, 2000.

American Toms, who carded a final-round 64, clinched his second PGA Tour title of the season and stays at number seven in the official world rankings.

Sweden's Fredrik Jacobson, who shared third place on Sunday with compatriot Richard Johnson, moves into the world's top 50 for the first time at 44.

Tiger Woods, who did not play at the St. Jude Classic, remains well clear at the top of the standings, extending his record run at number one to 202 consecutive weeks.

British Open champion Ernie Els, another absentee last week, stays at two, U.S. Masters winner Mike Weir, a triple winner on this year's U.S. Tour, holds on to third place and Davis Love III remains at four.

Apart from Price's climb to number 10, which dislodges American Kenny Perry to 11, the top 10 is unchanged from last week.

Britain's Phil Golding ended a 20-year wait for a European Tour title with a one-shot victory at the French Open on Sunday, and shoots up 192 spots to a career-high 219 in the world.

On the Asian PGA Tour, South Korea's Kyoung-Ju Choi won the Telecom Open in a playoff with compatriot Yong-Jin Shin on Sunday, and moves up two places to 31st in the world rankings.
