Schwartzel Approaches Top 20; Hend Into Top 100

Charl Schwartzel rose 11 spots in the rankings with his win at the Valspar Invitational, rising to No. 21 in the world in the latest installment of the Official World Golf Rankings.

Schwartzel has won thrice this year and moved up from 35th to 21st in the process.

Australian Scott Hend soared 53 spots in the rankings from 122nd to 79th following his win at the True Thailand Classic. He was easily the biggest jump inside the Top 100 this week.

No. 1 Jordan Spieth, who finished a lackluster T-18 at the Valspar Championship, held the top spot for a 19th straight week and 25th overall.
