Lee Westwood remains top of the pile, in a top ten which contains more Europeans than Americans.
Ryder Cup heroes Martin Kaymer and Luke Donald also feature in the top ten, while Paul Casey, who missed out on the victory over the USA, is in eighth.
One of the biggest movers in the latest rankings is South African Charl Schwartzel, who moved up nine places courtesy of his victory at the Johannesburg Open in his home country.
