PHILADELPHIA -- Carl Pettersson climbed 98 places in the world rankings following his victory Sunday at the Canadian Open.

Pettersson, who was one putt from shooting a 59 on Saturday, rallied to beat 54-hole leader Dean Wilson for his first win in two years, moving all the way to 109th in the rankings.

Ahead of him, the top of the rankings showed little change.

Tiger Woods remained No. 1 for the 268th consecutive week and was followed again by Phil Mickelson, Lee Westwood, Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk and Ernie Els.

Luke Donald took third place in Canada and moved up two places to No. 7, dropping Rory McIlroy and Paul Casey down one spot apiece.

Ian Poulter rounded out the top 10 again and was trailed by U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell, Martin Kaymer, Anthony Kim, Robert Allenby, British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen and Retief Goosen, who also held onto their positions from last week.

Edoardo Molinari used another good finish on the European Tour to move up six places to 17th. Justin Rose remained 18th, Padraig Harrington dropped two places to 19th and Zach Johnson rounded out the top 20 again. Sean O'Hair was knocked out of the top 20, dipping two spots to 21st.
