Padraig targets top ten return

Padraig Harrington will be bidding for a return to the world's top ten in Florida this week.

The Dubliner dropped one place to 11th in the latest rankings as Aussie Geoff Ogilvy leapt four places to seventh after reaching Sunday's Accenture Match Play Championship final in Tucson.

Beaten by Stewart Cink in the second round at Dove Mountain, Harrington will complete a four week run in the US in the Honda Classic at Palm Beach Gardens - a title he won two years ago.

Meanwhile, Darren Clarke remained outside the top 50 following his defeat to Sergio Garcia in Arizona.

The Dungannon man rose one place to 51st in the rankings after crashing out in the first round for the third year in a row.

Fellow Ulsterman Graeme McDowell slipped two places to 127th after a disappointing share of 63rd place in the PGA Tour's Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico.

Fred Funk, 50, took the title in a play-off Jose Coceres to become the fifth oldest PGA Tour winner in history.

Just the second player to win on the Tour after also claiming a Champions Tour title, he said: "It just feels good to win the tournament. Just to be able to compete with the young guys on the regular tour shows that the old guy has still got something. It's a very satisfying win for me."
