Stenson Rises to World No. 5

After threatening to fall out of the Top 10 altogether a few months ago, Henrik Stenson is on the move back up the charts in 2015.

The Nedbank Challenge runner-up jumped two spots to No. 5 in the world in the most recent Official World Golf Rankings released on Monday.

His move was one of three in the Top 10. Justin Rose fell two spots to No. 7, and Patrick Reed surged into the top 10 for the first time in his career, surging from No. 13.

Reed has climbed 13 spots since the end of 2014, the highest climb of any man in the top 10.

Nedbank winner Marc Leishman made an even bigger jump, rising from No. 47 to No. 26 with his victory.  He gives Australia three players ranked in the top 30.
