VIRGINIA WATER, England, Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Brandt Snedeker inched up another spot to No. 9 in the men's world golf rankings, which were updated Monday.
While there were no tournaments on the PGA Tour or European Tour this week -- the tours were off for the Ryder Cup competition -- dilution of points won in previous tournaments cost Jason Dufner. The difference was enough for Snedeker, with a ranking points average of 5.941, to edge past Dufner (5.922).
This week, the PGA Tour heads for Las Vegas for the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open while the European Tour conducts the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.
