Noh vaults into top 100 in world rankings

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Seung-Yul Noh collected his first PGA Tour victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans on Sunday, and that win vaulted him into the top 100 of this week's world golf rankings.

Noh, who was making his 78th career PGA Tour start, jumped up 88 spots from 176th to 88th. Also with the victory, Noh earned the last spot up for grabs for The Players Championship in two weeks.

Tiger Woods maintained the top spot, but with him out of action as he recovers from back surgery, his lead over No. 2 Adam Scott dropped from .53 average points to .27 average points.

The rest of the top 10 also remained the same, with Henrik Stenson holding the third spot ahead of Masters winner Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar, Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and Justin Rose.

The first movement in the rankings came with Rory McIlroy inching up to No. 11, which caused Zach Johnson to dip a spot to 12th. Dustin Johnson, Graeme McDowell, Steve Stricker and Charl Schwartzel all held firm from 13th through 16th.

Luke Donald and Jason Dufner swapped places as Donald moved up a spot to 17th and Dufner fell a place to 18th.

Keegan Bradley and Ian Poulter both moved up a pair of spots to sit in Nos. 19 and 20, which caused Jimmy Walker and Jim Furyk to fall out of the top 20.
