Brandt Snedeker has moved to a career-best fourth in the world after following up back-to-back runners-up finishes with victory at the Pebble Beach Pro-am.

The American relegates Justin Rose and Louis Oosthuizen to fifth and sixth respectively in the new rankings, while Richard Sterne's seven-shot win at the Joburg Open moves him up from 94th to 55th and into the field for next week's Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona.
