Grace, Moore climb in world rankings

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Branden Grace won for the fourth time this season on the European Tour on Sunday, while Ryan Moore claimed his second PGA Tour title. Those wins helped both players climb up this week's world rankings.

Grace, who won the week before in South Africa, jumped 12 to No. 36. Moore's win helped him move up five to 39th this week.

There was little change at the top of the rankings as many big names took the week off. Rory McIlroy kept his healthy lead atop the rankings and was followed again by Tiger Woods, Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, Justin Rose, Adam Scott, Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson, Brandt Snedeker and Jason Dufner.

Steve Stricker was 11th again and trailed by Louis Oosthuizen and Dustin Johnson. Keegan Bradley and Matt Kuchar exchanged spots with Bradley up to 14th.

Phil Mickelson held steady at No. 16 and was followed by Zach Johnson, Graeme McDowell, Sergio Garcia and Hunter Mahan.
