With the 1st place finish for Luke Donald in the Accenture Match Play Championship comes a move up to #3 in the world. Martin Kaymer came into the WGC event at #2 in the world, but now takes over the #1 ranking by making it to the final match. Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Lee Westwood were all pushed down.

Here’s the current top 10 golfers in the world, the “OWGR” list:

#1 Martin Kaymer
#2 Lee Westwood
#3 Luke Donald
#4 Graeme McDowell
#5 Tiger Woods
#6 Phil Mickelson
#7 Paul Casey
#8 Rory McIlroy
#9 Steve Stricker
#10 Matt Kuchar

Martin Kaymer

#1 golfer Martin Kaymer

I find it hard to believe that Tiger has has such poor finishes and is even in the top 10 right now. He hasn’t played top five golf for a long time.

Martin Kaymer’s game is so solid that he’ll have to melt down, or someone else will have to really come on strong to knock him out of the #1 spot.  I don’t see that happening any time soon.

    Hasn’t Graeme McDowell improved his world ranking position? He was below Woods last week.

  2. Actually not technically ancientlives. He was 4th last week, 4th this week.
