11:08 am on 14 August 2013

Golf's newest member of the major championship club, Jason Dufner, has risen 13 places to No.8 in the world rankings after his breakthrough win Monday at the US PGA championship in Rochester, New York.

Tiger Woods has retained a healthy points lead as world number with five titles to his credit this year, but he's completed a fifth year of major championships without adding to his 14 titles.

He tied for 40th on Monday, 14 shots behind Jason Dufner.
