PHILADELPHIA, June 7 (UPI) -- Vijay Singh remains the world's No. 1 ranked player in men's golf, the the latest Official World Golf Rankings showed.

Tiger Woods still is No. 2, missing out on a chance to overtake Singh when he finished in a tie for third behind winner Bart Bryant last weekend at The Memorial. Woods needed a solo third finish at the event to vault ahead of the idle Singh.

With the Memorial title, Bryant jumped 49 places to No. 31. Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson and defending U.S. Open Champion Retief Goosen remained 3-5, with Sergio Garcia, Chris DiMarco, Adam Scott, Padraig Harrington and David Toms rounding out the top 10.

Scott is the defending champion at this week's Booz Allen Classic and Justin Leonard dropped out of the top 20 with his 21st place finish at The Memorial.
