Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Justin Rose claimed his first major championship title on Sunday and that helped him move up two spots in this week's world golf rankings.

Rose won the U.S. Open by two strokes over Phil Mickelson and Jason Day. Rose is now No. 3 in the rankings and that matched his career high ranking.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy held steady in the top two spots despite poor results at Merion. They were followed by Rose.

Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar both dipped a spot to fourth and fifth. Mickelson jumped four places to sixth and was trailed by Luke Donald, Brandt Snedeker, Graeme McDowell and Louis Oosthuizen. Steve Stricker inched up two to 11, while Lee Westwood was down a spot to 12th.

Charl Schwartzel inched up a notch to 13th, Keegan Bradley dropped a pair to No. 14 and Sergio Garcia was 15th again this week. Day jumped 10 positions to 16th and was followed by Jason Dufner, who moved up three, and Ian Poulter, who dipped a spot to 18th.

Bubba Watson dropped three to 19th, while Ernie Els moved up a spot to 20th.

Webb Simpson and Dustin Johnson both fell out of the top 20 this week with Simpson down three to 21st and Johnson down four to 23rd.
