He was joined there by Australian Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters champion responding to a bogey at 15 with a birdie at the par-three 16th.

The rankings have added significance with the Ryder Cup coming up in France in September and the top 8 gaining automatic qualification for the 12-strong U.S. team.
