Jyoti Randhawa's sensational tied second finish at last week's Maybank Malaysian Open has helped him jump 32 places to 121st in the latest Official World Golf Rankings.
Randhawa, who came agonisingly close to his eighth career title before American Anthony Kang pipped him to the post on Sunday, has 1.247 average points.
Jeev Milkha Singh, off course last week, dropped a rung to 34th but remained the highest-ranked Indian on the list with 2.728 average points.
US-based Indian Arjun Atwal, who finished tied 33rd at the rain-truncated AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in California, was steady at the 221st spot with 0.788 average points.
Out-of-action American Tiger Woods continues to lead the pack for the 535th week with 9.90 average points. Woods' nearest challenger is Spaniard Sergio Garcia with a 7.85 average points.
