Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Steven Bowditch earned his first PGA Tour title on Sunday, and that helped the Australian make a huge jump in this week's world golf rankings.

Bowditch leapt 205 spots from No. 339 to No. 134 after winning the Texas Open.

There was little change at the top of the rankings. Tiger Woods held steady at No. 1 and was trailed by Adam Scott, Henrik Stenson, Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia.

Zach Johnson and Dustin Johnson, no relation, exchanged places with the 2007 Masters champion up to No. 9 and the reigning WGC-HSBC Champions winner dipping to 10th.

Matt Kuchar was No. 11 again this week and was followed by Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Graeme McDowell, Steve Stricker, Jason Dufner, Charl Schwartzel, Keegan Bradley, Ian Poulter and Brandt Snedeker.
