Paris - Justin Rose leapfrogged ahead of Ryder Cup teammate Rory McIlroy to take sixth place in the world golf rankings on Monday.

The Englishman, last year's US Open champion, tied for eighth on Sunday at Palm Harbour in the USPGA Valspar Championship tournament.

Tiger Woods, who was inactive, stayed top of the rankings with Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson, both of whom were also idle, in close pursuit.
