Johannesburg - Despite winning his first tournament in 20 months, Charl Schwartzel has only moved up four spots to No 23 in the world golf rankings released on Monday.

Schwartzel won the Thailand Golf Championship Asian tour event on Sunday by 11 shots to end a winless spell dating back to the 2011 Masters at Augusta.

Tim Clark produced a fourth place finish in the Nelson Mandela Championship which saw him move from 100 to 91st in the rankings.
