Masters win hoists Johnson into world top 15

Zach Johnson shot a final round of 69 to win the Masters Tournament at Augusta by two strokes with a one-over-par aggregate of 289, holding off the challenge of four-time champion Tiger Woods and South Africans Retief Goosen and Rory Sabbatini, who all tied for second place.

Johnson started the week at World Number 56 and becomes the first player from outside the World Top 50 to win the Masters since the Official World Golf Ranking started 21 years ago. His first Major Championship win takes Johnson to World Number 15.

Tiger Woods' second place has extended his lead over number two Jim Furyk to over 12 average points.

Henrik Stenson remains the highest ranked European at number 6, with Padraig Harrington and Luke Donald 10th and 11th respectively. Justin Rose's tie for fifth boosts him from 34th to 26th.

Asia counts three players in the top 50, with KJ Choi at 27th, Shingo Katayama at 38th and Yang Yong-eun number 50.
