Tiger Woods moves further ahead

World Number One Tiger Woods earned his 15th individual World Golf Championship title when he beat fellow American Stewart Cink 8 and 7 in the 36 hole final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play at The Gallery Golf Club near Tucson.

Woods stretched the gap between himself and Phil Mickelson, who lost in the 2nd round, to 11.12 average points at the top of the Official World Golf Ranking. Cink climbs to World Number 15 while Henrik Stenson, who beat Justin Leonard for third place, moves to World Number 12. Leonard moves up to World Number 36, back into the World Top 50 for the first time since May 2006.

Brian Gay won the Mayakoba Golf Classic at El Camaleon Golf Club in Mexico on the PGA Tour, a final round of 69 giving him a two stroke victory over Steve Marino. Gay jumps 74 positions to World Number 130.

Mark Brown from New Zealand shot a final round of 69 for a 274 aggregate and a four stroke win over Jyoti Randhawa at the Sail Open presented by Jaypee Greens on the Asian Tour. Brown continues his impressive climb up the World Ranking with a 90 spot jump to 181st.

On the Sunshine Tour defending champion Louis Oosthuizen gave a new meaning to the term runaway winner when he captured the Telkom PGA Championship at Country Club Johannesburg yesterday by 14 shots with a fabulous 28-under-par 260 aggregate. The win takes Oosthuizen 14 places higher up the World Ranking into 67th place.
