In a Year

Most Improved: Bart Bryant was ranked 136th at this point last year and is now 24th. That is essentially a jump from being a Tier 55 player to a Tier 2 player. The way he played last week solidified where his game stands.

Honorable Mention: Jose Maria Olazabal (132 - 27), Henrik Stenson (135 - 33), Ben Crane (121 - 34).

Most Consistent: Retief Goosen is not only in the same tier he was one year ago. He is also in the exact same place he was in the OWGR at that time. It's not been an easy year for the Goose but he's managed not to slide, nonetheless.

Honorable Mention: Sergio Garcia, Jim Furyk, Adam Scott, Chris DiMarco, Kenny Perry, Padraig Harrington, Darren Clarke, Stewart Cink, Stuart Appleby.

Biggest Slide: Todd Hamilton was one of only three players (with Weir and Ames) to fall off the list from last year. Currently at World 97, Hamilton has performed the worst of those three.
