World Golf Ranking

Clarke breaks into Top 20

London - Volvo Masters champion Darren Clarke broke into the world top 20 for the first time on Monday after his victory in Jerez over the weekend.

Hal Sutton won the Tour Championship in Atlanta at the first hole of a play-off with number eight Vijay Singh to move to 32nd -- his highest position for more than 10 years.

Colin Montgomerie, whose third place in Jerez behind Clarke and Andrew Coltart was enough to make him Europe's number one for the sixth successive year, stays sixth in the world.
