Look Behind you Tiger, Phil is sneaking up on you

In the wake of his win at Riviera on Sunday, Phil Mickelson trimmed Tiger Woods’ lead at the top of the world rankings to single digits.

Woods led Mickelson by 11.06 average points a week ago — Mickelson had only 9.01 points total — but that advantage was trimmed to 9.53 points this week: 19.71 for Woods to 10.18 for the second-ranked Mickelson.

Steve Stricker, Ernie Els and Adam Scott rounded out the top five in the same positions they held a week ago, while Justin Rose moved up one spot to sixth, bumping Jim Furyk to seventh.

That pattern repeated itself a few more times: K.J. Choi bumped Rory Sabbatini from the eighth spot, Padraig Harrington knocked Vijay Singh out of the 10th spot and Henrik Stenson replaced Sergio Garcia at 12th.

Angel Cabrera and Geoff Ogilvy remained 14th and 15th, while Luke Donald was up three spots to 16th. That knocked Zach Johnson, Aaron Baddeley and Lee Westwood down one spot apiece, while Trevor Immelman rounded out the top 20.
