Broberg, McDowell Into Top 70

The winners of the OHL Classic and the BMW Masters, Graeme McDowell and Kristoffer Broberg, both saw major moves in the latest Official World Golf Rankings on Monday.

McDowell climbed 23 spots from 85th to 62nd, while Broberg leaped 82 places from 149th to 67th.

Idle American Jordan Spieth held on to the No. 1 spot in the world. He will have a chance to put a wee bit more distance between himself and No. 2 Jason Day when he makes his European Tour debut at the DP World Championships this week.

It’s Spieth’s second straight week at No. 1, and eighth overall, tying him with Martin Kaymer for 15th on the all-time list of most weeks in the top spot.

Big finishes at the BMW Masters saw Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson each move up one spot to fifth and sixth in the world this week. Also on the rise was American Patrick Reed, from 17th to 14th.

The ever idle Tiger Woods tumbled six spots to No. 384 and may drop out of the top 400 by year’s end.
