Streelman: Up to world number 74
Unheralded American Kevin Streelman's maiden victory in the Tampa Bay Championship has lifted him to 74th in the latest world ranking.
A closing round of 67 saw Streelman secure a rise of 131 places due to his defeat of compatriot Boo Weekley by two shots at Innisbrook, Florida.
Streelman has risen from world number 225th at the end of 2012, to 205th at the start of week and now to number 74.
On the European Tour, Thomas Aiken's victory in the Avantha Masters lifted the South African from 129th to 90th, while runner-up Gaganjeet Bhullar of India moved from 107th to 85th.
Meanwhile, Tiger Woods can replace Rory McIlroy as world number one with a win in this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.
