Webb Simpson won the Wyndham Championship

After nearly two years without a tournament victory, Tiger Woods has found himself even further down the latest world rankings, with Wyndham Championship winner Webb Simpson the latest man to overtake the former world number one.

Simpson won his first PGA Tour title by three strokes from George McNeill, moving him up 22 places to 33rd and three above Woods in 36th, whose 623 weeks at the top of the rankings seems like a lifetime ago.

After missing the three months of action following his withdrawal from the Players’ Championship in May this year, Woods didn’t even manage to make the cut at the US PGA Championship, the latest in a long line of comebacks.

Luke Donald and Lee Westwood remain at numbers one and two in the world respectively, with compatriot Oliver Fisher, winner of the Czech Open, climbs up the rankings, rising from 507th to 238th.


World Top 20: 1 Luke Donald, 2 Lee Westwood, 3 Steve Stricker, 4 Martin Kaymer, 5 Rory McIlroy, 6 Phil Mickelson, 7 Adam Scott, 8 Jason Day, 9 Dustin Johnson, 10 Nick Watney, 11 Charl Schwartzel, 12 Matt Kuchar, 13 Graeme McDowell, 14 KJ Choi, 15 Bubba Watson, 16 David Toms, 17 Ian Poulter, 18 Paul Casey, 19 Robert Karlsson, 20 Kim Kyung-tae.
