Philadelphia, PA – Rafael Cabrera-Bello's one-shot win at the Dubai Desert Classic on Sunday resulted in a big jump in this week's world rankings.
Additionally, Phil Mickelson moved up the rankings with an emphatic victory at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Cabrera-Bello earned his second European Tour victory and moved him to 60th in the rankings, up 59 spots from last week. The win also qualified him for next week's WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.
The Spaniard's victory was all the more notable because he beat Lee Westwood, who rose to second. Luke Donald remains the No. 1 player this week, while Rory McIlroy dropped a place to third.
The rest of the top-10 remains unchanged from last week -- Martin Kaymer, Steve Stricker, Webb Simpson, Jason Day, Adam Scott, Charl Schwartzel and Dustin Johnson.
Mickelson, who fired a bogey-free eight-under 64 on Sunday to win at Pebble Beach, moved up six places to 11th.
His rise bumped Graeme McDowell, Matt Kuchar, Nick Watney, K.J. Choi, Brandt Snedeker and Sergio Garcia down a spot each. They fill the 12th through 17th positions.
Tiger Woods, who faltered at Pebble Beach with a final-round 75, remained at No. 18. Bubba Watson and Justin Rose are 19th and 20th again this week.
