Philadelphia, PA ( - John Senden earned his second PGA Tour title on Sunday and that helped him make a big move in this week's world golf rankings.

Senden soared 63 spots to No. 60 after winning the Valspar Championship.

There was little movement in the top 20. Tiger Woods remained the top-ranked player and he was followed again by Adam Scott, Henrik Stenson, Jason Day and Phil Mickelson.

Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy exchanged places with the Englishman up to No. 6 and the Ulsterman down to seven. Dustin Johnson was eighth again and he was followed by Sergio Garcia, who inched up one to No. 9 and that pushed Zach Johnson down to 10th.

Matt Kuchar held firm at No. 11 and was trailed again by Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Steve Stricker and Graeme McDowell. Jason Dufner moved up one to 16 and that pushed Charl Schwartzel down to 17th.

Ian Poulter was 18th again, while Brandt Snedeker and Patrick Reed rounded out the top 20 again this week.
