Official World Golf Rankings 2013: Phil Mickelson tumbles 2 spots


Phil Mickelson tumbled a bit after missing the cut at the 2013 Greenbrier Classic, but otherwise there was very little change near the top of this week's Official World Golf Rankings.

The Top 10 of this week's Official World Golf Rankings looks very similar to last week's. The only significant adjustment is Phil Mickelson's tumble from No. 6 to No. 8, and Graeme McDowell's jump from No. 9 to No. 6. Mickelson missed the cut at the 2013 Greenbrier Classic in West Viriginia this past weekend, in what was his first event since finishing second at the U.S. Open. McDowell, meanwhile, handily won the French Open, ending a bad run of missed cuts of his own.

Otherwise, the usual suspects held onto their usual spots near the top of the rankings. Tiger Woods is still the No. 1 player in the world, followed by Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar. Woods has been a fixture atop the rankings since late March.

Jonas Blixt made the biggest leap in the rankings after an incredibly consistent four days of golf to win the Greenbrier Classic. He is ranked No. 51 this week, after checking in at No. 103 overall to enter the weekend.

Below is the current Top 10. You can check out the full rankings at the official site.

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