Luke Donald with Accenture Trophy - click for larger version
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
#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.
