JOHANNESBURG – It was a quiet week on the Official World Golf Ranking list for the top 10 South Africans as Louis Oosthuizen remained the country’s top golfer in 13th place, unchanged from last week.

In fact, the top four South Africans all stayed in their previous week’s positions, with Garrick Higgo (39), Christiaan Bezuidenhout (47) and Branden Grace (61) making up the numbers in those positions.

The fifth-placed South African remained Daniel van Tonder, who dropped five places to 82nd after missing the cut in the European Tour’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

Charl Schwartzel moved up two places on the South African top 10, even though he dropped two spots on the world ranking list, with Dean Burmester and Brandon Stone both slipping after missing the cut in Ireland.
