I did not notice this until now, but Justin Rose has re-jumped Louis Oosthuizen in the world rankings. He has reclaimed his number four spot.

I guess it was not all bad news from the weekend for Rose. Though he pretty much collapsed in the final round of  Abu Dhabi Sunday, he played well enough to garner enough points to surpass Oosthuizen. Oosthuizen did not play last weekend.

It is not huge news, but could translate into a nice rivalry  this weekend, as both are participating in Qatar. It is possible that the player that finishes best this weekend will be number four in the world next weekend.
