Wilson and Bjorn both enter top 60

Mark Wilson won for the second time this season on Monday and moved up 40 places in this week's official world rankings.

Wilson's playoff victory on Monday got him up to 50th in this week's rankings.

Thomas Bjorn claimed a win on the European Tour Sunday at the Qatar Masters. The victory moved the Dane up a staggering 74 spots to No. 60 this week.

Lee Westwood stayed in the first spot, followed by Martin Kaymer, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Graeme McDowell. Kaymer can once again wrestle that No. 1 spot from Westwood this week in Dubai, where Woods is also teeing it up.

Paul Casey remained in sixth, but Rory McIlroy inched up one to seventh. Steve Stricker fell one to eighth, while Luke Donald and Jim Furyk switched rankings this week with the Englishman in ninth and the American in 10th.

Ernie Els, Ian Poulter, Matt Kuchar and Dustin Johnson held their places from last week. Robert Karlsson climbed one notch to 15th, while Retief Goosen sank one to 16th.

Francesco Molinari, Bubba Watson, Louis Oosthuizen and Edoardo Molinari rounded out the top 20.
