US Open 2013: Justin Rose moves up to third in the world with victory at Merion
Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy hold the top two positions
Monday 17 June 2013
Justin Rose has returned to third place in golf's world rankings following his maiden major championship victory in the US Open at Merion.
Rose climbs two places in the standings after a final round of 70 was enough for a two-shot win over Phil Mickelson and Jason Day.
Mickelson moves from 10th to sixth after his sixth runners-up finish in the US Open, with Day now a career-high 16th. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy remain first and second in the standings despite disappointing displays in the year's second major.
