Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ben Crane hung on for a 1-shot victory at the St. Jude Classic on Sunday, and that vaulted him to 101st in this week's world rankings.

Crane, who earned his fifth career win on the PGA Tour and first since the 2011 The McGladrey Classic, jumped 166 spots up the rankings from 267th last week.

The top of the rankings remained the same heading into the U.S. Open as Adam Scott maintained the No. 1 position ahead of Henrik Stenson, Masters winner Bubba Watson, Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar.

Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth again rounded out the top 10.

Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Hideki Matsuyama, Zach Johnson, Dustin Johnson, Jason Dufner, Steve Stricker, Luke Donald, Jimmy Walker and Victor Dubuisson remained in their positions from 11 through 20.

There were two players who got a spot in the U.S. Open due to their rankings this week, as Kevin Na and Bernd Wiesberger earned the right to play at Pinehurst No. 2.

Na is in 40th and will appear in his fourth U.S. Open, while Wiesberger just made the cut at No. 60 despite losing in a playoff to Mikael Lundberg at the European Tour's Lyoness Open on Sunday.

Lundberg is making his first career appearance at the U.S. Open.
