Tiger Woods and Adam Scott remained the top-two ranked players. Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson exchanged places with Stenson inching up to No. 3.

U.S. Open champion Justin Rose held steady at No. 5 and was again followed by Rory McIlroy, Steve Stricker, Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker and Jason Dufner.

Graeme McDowell, who shared second place behind Dustin Johnson, inched up one to 11th. Dustin Johnson moved into 12th and those two moves bumped Zach Johnson down a pair to 13th.
