Parry and Kingston close out the year with big gains

The final events counting towards the 2007 Official World Golf Ranking have now been played.

Craig Parry won the MFS Australian Open by a single shot from Lee Won Joon, American Brandt Snedeker and Nick O'Hern in heavy rain at the Australian Golf Club in Sydney. This was Parry's first win in his National Open coming 17-years after losing a playoff to John Morse at the same venue. Parry climbs to World Number 122, a jump of 157 places, while Snedeker claims a place in the World Top 50 at 47th.

James Kingston completed an emotional victory at the South African Airways Open, holding off the challenge of England’s Oliver Wilson to lift his National Open Championship. Kingston shot a final round 71 for an overall score of four under par 278 total, one ahead of Wilson. Kingston jumps 195 positions in the Official World Gold Ranking and will end 2007 as World Number 155.

Although world no. 1 Tiger Woods achieved a dominant victory in his own Target World Challenge tournament for his fourth win in his last five outings - and this after a ten week layoff - the event did not count towards the World Ranking. He nevertheless closes the year almost 11 average points ahead of nearest challenger Phil Mickelson. His score of 19.62 average points is more than double Mickelson's and almost treble that of world no. 3 Jim Furyk.
