Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Justin Rose won for the sixth straight year on the PGA Tour and his victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans helped him move to No. 6 in the world rankings.
Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open winner, improved three spots thanks to his seventh PGA Tour title.
Other than Rose's move, there was little movement in the top 20 of the rankings. Rory McIlroy remained the No. 1 player and he was trailed by Masters champion Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Bubba Watson and Heritage winner Jim Furyk.
Rose's move to No. 6 pushed Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and Adam Scott down one spot apiece. Sergio Garcia rounded out the top 10 again this week.
The second 10 was unchanged with No. 11 Jimmy Walker followed by J.B. Holmes, Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar, Patrick Reed, Hideki Matsuyama, Martin Kaymer, Phil Mickelson, Billy Horschel and Brooks Koepka.
Former world No. 1 Lee Westwood won his third Indonesian Masters title on Sunday and he improved from 33rd to 27th in this week rankings. Ashun Wu claimed the China Open and he soared from No. 247 to No. 126.
