David Lingmerth defeated Justin Rose on the third playoff hole at the Memorial on Sunday for his first career victory and that helped the Swede jump all the way up to No. 71 in the world rankings.

Lingmerth used his win to vault well into the top-100 from 212 to 71, a total of 141 spots.

Rory McIlroy and Masters champion Jordan Spieth remain in firm control of the one and two slots, while Jim Furyk's tie for fifth last week allowed him to jump a pair up to No. 3.

With Furyk's ascension, Bubba Watson and Henrik Stenson both fell one to four and five. Despite his runner-up finish, Rose stayed put at six. Dustin Johnson and Players champion Rickie Fowler swapped spots, with Johnson up one to seven.

Sergio Garcia, Jason Day, Jimmy Walker, Adam Scott, J.B. Holmes, Hideki Matsuyama, Patrick Reed and Chris Kirk remained Nos. 9-16. Matt Kuchar and Martin Kaymer traded places, while Phil Mickelson and Billy Horschel rounded out the top-20 for another week.
