The evil reign of Martin Kaymer ends after, uh, eight weeks

We have a new No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings, and no, it wasn't Luke Donald. The Lukester (golfers need good nicknames) was apparently headed for a big win that would have propelled him to the top spot, displacing Martin Kaymer, but he slipped a gear on Sunday and fell short. Tough go there, Luke.

Meanwhile, Lee Westwood got to play big dog and thump a field with exactly one name you may have heard of: Thongchai Jaidee. Otherwise, Westwood knocked around a motley crew that included guys like Hirotaro Naito, Miles Tunnicliff, and the immortal Thitiphun Chuayprakong. Still, a win is a win is a win, and this one was good enough to get Westwood right into the top spot of the OWGR. At least Westwood got there this time by hoisting a trophy, not by being a bystander while somebody else self-immolated.

Phil Mickelson and Graeme McDowell make up the rest of the top five, but that'll change soon enough, probably after the Wells Fargo Championship in a couple weeks.

Does the OWGR matter? Well, it's becoming more of a conversation piece these days. And as this weekend demonstrated, it's going to be up for grabs for the foreseeable future. Warm up those sticks, friends, and you might have a shot at it yourself.
