Tiger Woods surges clear on top of Rankings

Tiger Woods raced 12 points clear at the top of the world rankings issued on Monday after winning the 88th U.S. PGA Championship, the 12th major victory of his career.

The 30-year-old American extended his lead over world number two Phil Mickelson after his five-stroke triumph at Medinah, Illinois on Sunday.

It was Woods's second major win of the year after he also triumphed in last month's British Open at Hoylake.

Alejandro Canizares, 23, of Spain climbed to 238th in the rankings after winning the Russian Open, only his third European Tour event as a professional.
