World Top 30: Bradley in, Woods out

Keegan Bradley’s fine week continues: first the Wanamaker Trophy, and now a rocket-like surge up the official World Golf Rankings.
Having displayed fantastic fortitude in making up five strokes after a triple bogey on the 15th to take the PGA Championship on Sunday, the 25-year-old from Vermont is having a rookie season to remember.

Bradley jumps a huge 79 places in the Rankings taking him into the Top 30 at No 29.

An all-time high for the golfer who also won the Byron Nelson Championship in May, his victory at the Atlanta Athletic Club makes it seven consecutive first time major Championship winners.

At the other end of the spectrum, Tiger Woods is one of the players who drop out of the elite thirty best golfers.

After struggling at last week’s major where he missed the cut by a mile, the former number 1 has dropped five places from No 27 to 33.

England’s Luke Donald and Lee Westwood remain at in the top two spots, having both tied for eighth in Atlanta.

Despite never having won a major, Donald starts his twelfth week as World Number One.

Outside of the top two from across the pond, the top 10 sees American Steve Stricker leapfrog Martin Kaymer of Germany into third and retaining his position as highest ranked player from the U.S.

The winner of the WGC Invitational at Firestone, Adam Scott also makes a move as he jumps two places up to No 7.
