Not much sense

This is one of those weeks where the Official World Golf Rankings doesn't make much sense. Of the top 20 players in the world only a few played last week and of those only Sergio Garcia and Tim Clark played well. Yet, neither Garcia's nor Clark's performances had any effect on the tiers. Garcia is already comfortably a Tier II golfer. Adam Scott and Chris DiMarco sneaked into Tier II without playing last weekend. This enabled Kenny Perry and Angel Cabrera to get back into Tier III and Padraig Harrington, Luke Donald, Colin Montgomerie, and Michael Campbell to move up to Tier IV without any of them playing either. Clark's top 10 performance merely maintained his position at 19 in the OWGR as he joins Davis Love III, David Howell, and Darren Clarke as they return to my list in Tier V.
