Retief Goosen climbs to World No.4

Retief Goosen has moved up to No. 4 in the Official World Golf Ranking, knocking his injured South African compariot Ernie Els down into the No. 5 spot. Goosen also is closing in on a stagnating No. 3 Phil Mickelson.

Also on the move in the top 10 was Jim Furyk, who leapfrogged two places to oust Australian Adam Scott from the No. 7 spot, despite coming up short at the Michelin Championship on Sunday, where he lost a playoff to unheralded Wes Short Jr.

There has also been movement a little bit lower down, with Kenny Perry swapping places with Angel Cabrera at Nos. 11 and 12 and Luke Donald moving from 16 to 13, where he has bumped Padraig Harrington back to 14 and Colin Montgomerie from 14 to 16.

The big moves this week have, of course, been made by the two first-time winners.

Frenchman Raphael Jacqelin, winner of the Madrid Open, hoisted himself 37 places to No. 86, while the little-known Short rocketed 296 places to No 94. Short started the year ranked at 638.

Tiger Woods remained in first, while Vijay Singh and Phil Mickelson held their second and third spots. Sergio Garcia stayed in sixth, while Chris DiMarco slipped one rung to ninth. David Toms rounded out the top 10 for the second consecutive week.

Reigning U.S. Open champion Michael Campbell kept his 15th spot, while Davis Love III, Darren Clarke, Tim Clark and David Howell completed the top 20.
