Philadelphia, PA ( - Webb Simpson rolled to a 6-stroke victory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Sunday and that moved him up to 17th in this week's world golf rankings.

The 2012 U.S. Open champion's fourth career title jumped him up seven places in the standings from 24th last week.

The top of the standings remained unchanged as Tiger Woods maintained the No. 1 ranking ahead of Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose.

Rory McIlroy, Steve Stricker, Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker, and Jason Dufner again rounded out the top 10. Zach Johnson and Graeme McDowell stayed put in 11th and 12th, while Jim Furyk and Luke Donald swapped places to sit in 13th and 14th, respectively.

Keegan Bradley and Jason Day held firm in 15th and 16th ahead of Simpson, whose jump caused Charl Schwartzel and Sergio Garcia to each drop a spot to 18th and 19th. Jordan Spieth maintained his position at No. 20.

Lee Westwood fell two places to 21st, Ian Poulter stayed at 22nd and Dustin Johnson dropped a pair of slots to 23rd. Ernie Els fell a place to 24th and Hunter Mahan again rounded out the top 25.
