Week 41 - MARTIN KAYMER MOVES TO WORLD NUMBER FOUR WITH HIS THIRD STRAIGHT TOUR WIN AT THE ALFRED DUNHILL LINKS CHAMPIONSHIP

Martin Kaymer became the first player to win three times in a row on The European Tour since Tiger Woods four years ago as he sealed victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship with a final round of 66 over the Old Course at St. Andrews in bitterly cold and windy conditions. The 25 year old German added this title to the US PGA Championship he took in a play-off in August and the KLM Open he won comfortably last month. The win takes the 25-year-old German up two places to World Number 4, a career best.

A final-round 68 earned Heath Slocum victory at the McGladrey Classic at Sea Island, Georgia, his 14-under-par total enough to edge out last week's winner Bill Haas, who shot a 66, by a single shot. The win takes Slocum up 11 places to 52 and Haas continues his rise up the World Ranking with an 8 spot jump to World Number 56.

This week's other winners were Shinichi Yokota at the Canon Open on the Japan Golf Tour, Scott Gardiner at the Chattanooga Classic Presented by Black Creek on the Nationwide Tour, Bernd Wiesberger at the ALLIANZ Golf Open du Grand Toulouse on the Challenge Tour and Y.E. Yang at the Kolon Korea Open on the OneAsia Tour.
