Tway moves back in to World's Top 50

Former U.S. PGA champion Bob Tway has rocketed 24 places to 45th in the world rankings following his playoff victory at the Canadian Open on Sunday.

The 44-year-old Tway edged out Brad Faxon on the third extra hole at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ontario, clinching his first PGA Tour victory in eight years.

Tway, who holed out from a greenside bunker at the last to pip Greg Norman for the 1986 U.S. PGA Championship at Inverness, had fired a closing four-under-par 66 to finish regulation play level with Faxon (67) at eight-under 272.

The world top 10 remains unchanged from last week, although second-ranked Ernie Els narrowed the gap on Tiger Woods with his six-stroke victory at the European Masters on Sunday.

Els, who clinched his sixth title of the year at Crans-sur-Sierre in Switzerland with a final round of six-under-par 65, has closed to within 6.77 points of Woods, who did not play last week.

However, Woods extends his record run at number one to 212 consecutive weeks.

Davis Love III stays at number three, Vijay Singh at four and U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk at five.

On the Japan Golf Tour, American Todd Hamilton won the PGA Matchplay Championship on Sunday and moves up to 70th in the global pecking order.
