Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Brandt Snedeker claimed his second title of the season at the Canadian Open on Sunday, but that was not enough to move him up any further in this week's world golf rankings.

Snedeker held firm at seventh in the rankings, but he did pull within .04 average points of Matt Kuchar, who finished in a tie for second place in Ontario to stay in sixth.

There was minor movement overall in the top of the rankings as Tiger Woods remained the No. 1 golfer and was again followed by British Open winner Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy.

The only movement in the top 10 came with Justin Rose and Adam Scott swapping places, with Rose jumping up to fourth and Scott falling to fifth.

The next eight spots remained the same as Kuchar and Snedeker were followed by Graeme McDowell, Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, Steve Stricker, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel.

Ernie Els moved up one spot to 14th, which dropped Ian Poulter down to 15th. Sergio Garcia, Keegan Bradley and Bubba Watson maintained their positions of 16th through 18th.

Henrik Stenson and Jason Day swapped places to round out the top 20 as Stenson moved up a spot to 19th and Day dipped one to No. 20.

The largest movement in the top of the rankings came from Dustin Johnson, who jumped up four spots to 21st with his second-place finish at the Canadian Open. Johnson sat tied with Snedeker entering the 17th hole on Sunday, but a triple bogey dropped him out of contention.

Michael Hoey claimed his fifth career title on the European Tour with a four- stroke victory at the Russian Open to vault himself 128 spots up the rankings to 175th.
