Paul Goydos climbs to world no. 39

Paul Goydos birdied the Par 5 18th hole for a one stroke victory over Luke Donald and Charles Howell-III at the Sony Open in Hawaii at Waialae Country Club, Honolulu.

Goydos last won on the PGA Tour eleven years ago and late in the 2006 season he dramatically saved his Tour card with a tied second place at the Chrysler Championship. His win in Hawaii takes him to World Number 39, an improvement of 95 positions.

Luke Donald's second place finish moves him up three spots from 10th last week to 7th, as Padraig Harrington slips from 7th to 9th with Retief Goosen remaining in 8th. Geoff Ogilvy drops from 9th to 10th, despite finishing tied for eighth at the Sony.

Argentina's Ariel Canete captured his maiden European Tour title with three birdies in the final four holes to become the inaugural winner of the Joburg Open at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club, an event co-sanctioned between the Sunshine Tour and European Tour. Canete leaps 226 places in the Official World Golf Ranking to 212th.
