European golf is in fine fettle - you only have to look at the world rankings to realise that.
Germany's Martin Kaymer is now top of the pile after a phenomenal run of form in his golf clothing, and the next three spots are also occupied by Europeans.
Lee Westwood slipped back to second after being outperformed by Kaymer at the recent WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.
Long-time world number one Tiger Woods is now down in fifth, behind Ryder Cup hero Graeme McDowell.
There are two more Europeans in the top ten, with Paul Casey in at number seven and Rory McIlroy just one place behind.
The familiar names of Phil Mickelson (sixth), Steve Stricker (ninth), and Matt Kuchar (tenth), make up the rest of the top ten to bolster the American presence among the world's elite.
This is the first time since Ian Woosnam, Nick Faldo, Jose Maria Olazabal and Seve Ballesteros topped the World Rankings list in 1992 that Europeans have owned the first four places.
