Toms moves up to 6th in World Rankings

David Toms displayed toughness on his way to a second-place finish at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship and moved up two places in the latest Official World Golf Ranking.

Toms, who spent four hours in a hospital Friday morning with food poisoning but nearly came back from 5 down against Tiger Woods in Sunday's 36-hole final, moved to No. 6 this week.

Woods, who became the first player to win all four World Golf Championships events, remained firmly in first place for the 185th consecutive week.

Ernie Els, who was upset by Phil Tataurangi in the first round at La Costa, held on to second. He will defend his title in Dubai on the European Tour this week rather than defend his title at the Ford Championship at Doral .

Phil Mickelson stayed in third, followed by Vijay Singh, who hopes to return this week after a rib injury, and Retief Goosen, also a first-round casualty at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

A pair of Australians who competed in the consolation match of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championships made significant moves up the ranking. Adam Scott finished third and moved up 15 places to No. 33 while Peter Lonard, who lost to Scott on Sunday, climbed six notches to 27th.

Frank Lickliter, who captured the Chrysler Classic of Tucson Sunday, moved into the top 100. He jumped 40 spots to No. 91.
