Bubba Watson remains fourth after his Masters triumph, with Hunter Mahan following in fifth.

Meanwhile, South African Branden Grace is now up to 66th in the world following his third victory of the season at the Volvo China Open. The European Tour qualifying school graduate began the season 271st.

Former Open champion Ben Curtis won the Valero Texas Open and moves from 285th to 156th.
