Quiros soars to 21st in world rankings

Alvaro Quiros claimed his second victory of 2011, and sixth of his career, on Sunday and that helped the Spaniard jump 31 places to 21st in this week's world rankings.

Earlier in the year, Quiros also won the Dubai Desert Classic giving him both titles in Dubai in 2011.

Luke Donald took third behind Quiros, thus clinching the Order of Merit. He was the first player ever to win the European and PGA Tour money titles in the same season.

Behind Donald, the next three were unchanged with No. 2 Rory McIlroy followed by Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer. Adam Scott inched up to fifth and bumped Steve Stricker down one to sixth.

Dustin Johnson held steady in seventh and was again followed by Jason Day, Webb Simpson and Matt Kuchar. Masters champion Charl Schwartzel ended fifth behind Quiros and jumped two spots to 11th. Nick Watney was down one to 12th, Graeme McDowell inched up a notch to 13th and Phil Mickelson slid two to 14th.

K.J. Choi held steady at No. 15, while Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose exchanged places with Garcia up to 16th. Hunter Mahan remained No. 18 and was trailed again by Paul Casey and Bubba Watson.
