Stenson reaches top 10 as Baddeley enters top 50

Henrik Stenson birdied the 18th hole for a one stroke victory in the Dubai Desert Classic at the Emirates Golf Club ahead of World Number 4 Ernie Els, who was second, and World Number One Tiger Woods, who tied for third with Niclas Fasth.

Stenson climbs 4 places to World Number 10 and becomes only the 65th player to have reached top-10 status since the OWGR began just under 21 years ago (click here for more).

Aaron Baddeley from Australia birdied three of his final four holes Sunday to catch and pass Friday and Saturday leader Jeff Quinney and win the FBR Open at TPC Scottsdale, his second PGA Tour victory.

Baddeley climbs 46 places to World Number 44 and secures a place in the WGC-Accenture Match Play, the field for which will be determined by next week's Official World Golf Ranking.

This week's other winners were Jean Hugo at the Nashua Masters on the Sunshine Tour, Frankie Minoza at the Philippine Open on the Asian Tour and Edorado Molinari at the Club Colombia Masters on the Challenge Tour.
