New Delhi:Jyoti Randhawa made a return to the top 100 of the world rankings with his three-shot win at the Hero Honda Indian Open at the Delhi Golf Club. Randhawa, who was languishing at the 114th place at the start of the previous week, has now moved up 23 places to 91.
The highest ranked Indian is still Jeev Milkha Singh who finished 13th in the Indian Open and moved one place up from 77 to 76 but is still way off the 37th place from where he started the year. Interestingly, Randhawa had started the year at 84th place.
Gaurav Ghei is now at the 200th place, down eight places from 192 last week, three behind Indo-Swede Daniel Chopra.

The world list as usual is headed by Tiger Woods (23.60 average points), who is way ahead of second placed Phil Mickelson (9.54). Jim Furyk is third, while Ernie Els - who captured a seventh HSBC World Match Play Championship when he overcame US Open Champion Angel Cabrera by 6 and 4 in the final - moves up a place to fourth.
