AFTER TWO wins in two weeks, Lee Westwood (above) rose to the top of the SIGolf Ranking. Westwood hit No. 1 in the World Ranking two weeks ago, but the SI pollsters refused to reward him for winning the Indonesian Masters, instead keeping Luke Donald, who finished second at the Heritage, in the highest spot. Donald had another top 10 last week at the Zurich Classic (tie for eighth), but Westwood surpassed him with a win in the Ballantine's Championship, a European tour--sanctioned event that was played in South Korea against a field that included Dustin Johnson and Miguel Angel Jiménez but few other notable players. Westwood will miss the chance to test his streak against a top field because he has said he won't participate in the Wells Fargo Championship or next week's Players.
The SIGolf Ranking's biggest mover was Bubba Watson, whose second win of 2011 and third in 10 months propelled him from unranked to No. 5. His previous high of sixth came after he reached the semifinals of the Match Play.
