Japanese money leader Ryo Ishikawa climbed up three places to a personal-best 29th in the latest golf world rankings released Sunday.
Yuta Ikeda, who needs to win this week’s season-ending Nippon Series JT Cup to beat the 18-year-old Ishikawa in the race for the JGTO tour money title, also edged up the list, moving from 35th up to 33rd.
Shingo Katayama was 52nd, while Hiroyuki Fujita was ranked 64th.
Komei Oda, who claimed a three-shot victory over Ishikawa in Sunday’s Casio World Open, rose from 115th to 76th.
Tiger Woods retained the No. 1 spot in an unchanged top four.
