Golf Rankings: Simpson soars; Woods wilts
Tiger Woods’ star continues to wane. At least according to updated world ranks released on Monday.

The former No.1 slide three places to 36th, dropping below British Open champ Darren Clarke, Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez and Webb Simpson.

Woods is likely to fall further down the rankings after failing to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Much of his demotion was a result of missing the cut at the PGA Championships at the Atlanta Athletic Club, the first time he has missed the cut at a major.

Woods is scheduled to next play at the Australian Open in November.

In contrasting fortunes, Simpson had the biggest jump in the top 50, leaping 22 places up to 33rd after he clinched the Wyndham Championship in his native North Carolina last week.

His victory has thrown him into contention for the season ending Fed-Ex Cup, and heralds his rise into Golf’s elite, having started the year outside the top 200.

The top set remain the same with Luke Donald retaining his No. 1 ranking for the thirteenth week, ahead of compatriot Lee Westwood and American Steve Stricker.

Martin Kaymer and Rory McIlroy round out the top five, one ahead of Phil Mickelson in sixth.
