Ernie Els wins SAA Open and climbs back to world no. 5

Ernie Els won the South African Airways Open at Humewood GC, Port Elizabeth by three strokes from compatriot and overnight leader Trevor Immelman after a brilliant final round of seven under par 65 in blustery conditions. Els climbs 3 places to World Number 5 in the Final Official World Golf Ranking of 2006, the position he also held at the end of 2005.

Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee survived a double bogey finish to win the season-ending Volvo Masters of Asia. The win lifts Jaidee to second in the Final UBS Order of Merit on the Asian Tour and he will finish 2006 as the 75th ranked player in the World, a rise of 28 places.

These two events were the final two counting events of 2006 so the final Official World Golf Ranking of 2005 - Week 52 - 31st December is attached.
