Official World Golf Rankings 2013: Rory McIlroy remains No. 1 golfer in the world

Hong Wu

Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods find themselves once again the No. 1 and 2 golfers in the world, as the latest World Golf Rankings were released on Monday.

The luck of the Irish was with Rory McIlroy on Monday, as McIlroy topped the latest World Golf Rankings for last week -- ending on St. Patrick's Day.

The entire top 10 remains unchanged from last week, as McIlroy leads the pack, with Tiger Woods, Luke Donald, Brandt Snedeker and Justin Rose rounding out the top five golfers.

Five Americans in total land in the top 10, as Steve Stricker, Matt Kuchar and Phil Mickelson are ranked eighth, ninth and tenth, respectively.

Here's a look at the latest top ten, as golfers get ready for the Arnold Palmer Invitational, set for Mar. 21-24.

  1. Rory McIlroy
  2. Tiger Woods
  3. Luke Donald
  4. Brandt Snedeker
  5. Justin Rose
  6. Louis Oosthuizen
  7. Adam Scott
  8. Steve Stricker
  9. Matt Kuchar
  10. Phil Mickelson

Woods is the defending champion at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and another strong showing could help close the gap between he and McIlroy atop the rankings.

Golf's first major of the season is just weeks away, as the Masters Tournament will begin on Thursday, Apr. 11.
