McIlroy back on top
By QMI AGENCY
Rory McIlroy is No. 1 again, switching places with Luke Donald in the men's world golf ranking for the second week in a row.
McIlroy, having lost a playoff Sunday to Rickie Fowler at the Wells Fargo Championship, is No. 1 for the third time this year, for a total of five weeks. Donald had held the top spot for 40 weeks when McIlroy leapfrogged him March 4. Donald took it back two weeks later. McIlroy became No. 1 for the second time on April 15.
Lee Westwood, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan round out the top five.
