Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Henrik Stenson earned his first win of the year at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday, and that victory moved him up to No. 6 in this week's world golf rankings.

Stenson's fourth career victory on the PGA Tour jumped him up four spots from 10th last week. The win also moved him into the top spot of the FedExCup playoff points list, 14 points ahead of Tiger Woods.

The top three players in the rankings remained the same, with Woods again being followed by Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson. Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy swapped places to sit in fourth and fifth, respectively.

Stenson's move to sixth caused Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker and Jason Dufner all to drop a spot from seventh to ninth. Steve Stricker finished two strokes behind Stenson at TPC Boston to move up four places to 10th.

Graeme McDowell fell a pair of spots to 11th, Keegan Bradley held firm in 12th, Luke Donald dropped two places to 13th, Lee Westwood fell a spot to 14th and Jim Furyk stayed put in 15th.

Ian Poulter moved up one place to 16th and Sergio Garcia jumped three spots to 17th. Jason Day remained in 18th, while Charl Schwartzel fell three spots to 19th and Ernie Els dropped a spot to round out the top 20.
