VIRGINIA WATER, England, April 14 (UPI) -- Trevor Immelman's Master's victory moved him from 29th of 15th Monday in the world golf rankings.

The 28-year-old South African won the Grand Slam event Sunday in Augusta, Ga.

Longtime No. 1 No. Tiger Woods, who finished second in the Master's, increased his lead in the rankings over No. 2 Phil Mickelson, who tied for fifth in the tournament.

Ernie Els, Steve Stricker and Geoff Ogilvy complete the top five, which has the same lineup as last week.

K.J. Choi remained at No. 6, and Justin Rose and Vijay Singh both climbed two spots to seventh and eighth.

Jim Furyk and Adam Scott each dropped two places and round out the top 10.

After them, in order, are Padraig Harrington, Rory Sabbatini, Henrik Stenson, Stewart Cink and Immelman.
