Allenby won the MasterCard Australian Masters this past weekend after claiming the Australian Open and Australian PGA Championship the two weeks prior.

The move positions Allenby comfortably in the top 50 with only the South African Airways Open this week scheduled to be played in 2005. Players in the top 50 at year-end earn automatic invitations to the Masters.

The top 10 remained the same from a week ago. Tiger Woods, who just finished a stretch of five events in five weeks in three countries, remained the top-ranked player despite his lackluster performance in the Target World Challenge.

Vijay Singh of Fiji held onto the No. 2 position and was followed by Phil Mickelson, South African Retief Goosen, Dunhill Championship winner Ernie Els of South Africa, Sergio Garcia of Spain, Jim Furyk, Adam Scott of Australia, Scotsman Colin Montgomerie and Chris DiMarco. Kenny Perry stayed put at 11, but there were a few changes after him.

Irishman Padraig Harrington tied for third at the Target World Challenge and jumped five spaces to No. 12 this week. Target Challenge winner Luke Donald of England was up one to 13th, while Englishman David Howell slipped one to 14th.

New Zealander Michael Campbell, who finished alongside Harrington, remained in the 15th spot. Angel Cabrera tumbled four places to 16th after failing to win the Argentine Open in his homeland, while David Toms dipped one to 17.

Davis Love III and Darren Clarke exchanged positions from last week with Love taking 18 and the Ulsterman dropping to 19. Tim Clark of South Africa remained in the 20th slot again this week.
