After his top-4 finish at The Scottish Open 2014 at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club Balgownie Links after an eight under par final round of 63, Scotland’s Stephen Gallagher is up 4 spots to 33rd in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR), one place behind Lee Westwood of England.

Felow-Scot, Russell Knox, is up 2 spots to 97th place and another compatriot, Marc Warren, rises to103rd from 161st position.

PGA Tour Champion, Martin Laird, climbs 2 spots to OWGR 154.

Scott Jamieson, who secured one of the final qualifying spots for The Open 2014 at Balgownie, rises from 211 to OWGR 182.

US Senior Open Champion, Colin Montgomerie, the eight-times European Tour #1, seems to have dropped 13 places after his win, which does not seem to make much sense and devalues victory at this senior major golf championship.

The latest OWGR for Scottish players, grouped by top-1,000 reads as follows.
