Camilo Villegas leaps to world number 7

Colombian Camilo Villegas stormed from five strokes behind in the final round before beating Sergio Garcia in a play-off to win the Tour Championship. Villegas had eight birdies on his way to a closing four-under-par 66 and Garcia joined him on seven under par with a 71. As well as securing second place in the FedEx Cup with his second consecutive win Villegas jumps 10 places to 7th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño won the Quinn Insurance British Masters at The Belfry after a play-off with Lee Westwood. The Spaniard started the final round three shots behind the defending champion but a brilliant final round 67 took him level with Westwood on 12 under par. The victory takes Fernández-Castaño to 91st place in the Official World Golf Ranking, an improvement of 68 places.

This week's other winners were Hideto Tanihara at the Asia-Pacific Panasonic Open, co-sanctioned by the Japan Golf Tour and Asian Tour, and Taco Remkes at the The Dutch Futures on the European Challenge Tour.
