Stricker and Choi enter world top ten

Steve Stricker won The Barclays tournament at Westchester by two-strokes over Korea's KJ Choi. This victory in the first of the PGA Tour Playoffs for the Fedex Cup puts Stricker to the top of the Fedex Cup table and takes him to world number 5, a leap of 9 positions on the week and 58 positions higher than his end of 2006 World Ranking.

KJ Choi breaks into the world top ten for the first time, up three positions at number eight, having begun the year in 29th spot.

Ross Fisher won the KLM Open with a birdie at the final hole for a closing three under par 67 and a 12 under par 268 aggregate, to take the title by a stroke from young Dutchman Joost Luiten. Fisher jumps up 97 positions in the Official World Golf Ranking to 161.
