Sergio Garcia is new world number 2

Sergio Garcia has achieved his highest world ranking of second as he completed victory at the weather delayed HSBC Champions at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai. Garcia birdied the 72nd to set a target of 14-under-par which was matched by overnight leader Oliver Wilson. Garcia birdied the same hole at the second extra hole to deny the Englishman.

The last European born player to be ranked second in the world was Colin Montgomerie twelve years ago.

Davis Love-III picked up his first victory in more than two years by winning the Children's Miracle Network Classic presented by Wal-Mart at Lake Buena Vista, Florida. This is a landmark 20th career win for Love-III as he joins Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh as the only active players to have secured at least 20 PGA Tour wins. Love-III climbs 90 places to World Number 76.

This week's other winners were Matt Bettencourt at the Nationwide Tour Championship and Hur Suk-ho at The Championship by Lexus on the Japan Golf Tour.
