Tiger extends lead - Rose is leading Briton

World Number One Tiger Woods won the third of the PGA Tour Playoffs for the Fedex Cup with an outstanding final round of 63, 8 under par at the Cog Hill Golf & Country Club, Lemont, Illinois.

This win is Wood's 60th PGA Tour victory from an astonishing 215 starts, and he opens up a gap at the top of the Official World Golf Ranking of nearly 14 average points over Phil Mickelson heading into the Tour Championship.

Thanks to his fifth place at the BMW, Justin Rose moves up two spots into 13th and takes over the position of leading Briton in the ranking, overhauling Luke Donald who slips to 15th. The leading European in the ranking remains Open Champion Padraig Harrington in 7th, with Open runner-up Sergio Garcia in 11th.

Australian Brett Rumford chipped in on the first extra hole to defeat Phillip Archer from England and take the European Masters title at Crans-sur-Sierre in Switzerland. Rumford and Archer had finished on 16 under par 268, a stroke ahead of defending champion Bradley Dredge of Wales. Rumford climbs 128 places in the Official World Golf Ranking to 145th.

Hideto Tanihara won his second consecutive tournament on the Japan Golf Tour at the Suntory Open, weather shortened the same as last week's Fujisankei Classic. Tanihara continues his climb up the World Ranking to 81st position, and improvement of 25 spots.

Iain Pyman also won for a second straight week as he becomes the fifth two time winner on the 2007 European Challenge Tour and moves to World Number 296 with his win at the Telia Challenge Waxholm.

Franklin Langham won the Utah Energy Solutions Championship on the Nationwide Tour and climbs to World Number 294.
