McIlroy cracks top 10 in World Ranking

November 22, 2009

Rory McIlroy has joined Sergio Garcia as the only 20-year-olds ever to have been in the top 10 in the World Ranking. Even Tiger Woods, who won two PGA Tour events in 1996 as a 20-year-old, wasn't ranked in the top 10 until '97.

McIlroy moved past Jim Furyk and into the 10th spot by virtue of his third-place finish in the Dubai World Championship.
