South Carolina: Britain`s Lee Westwood will replace Germany`s Martin Kaymer as world number one when the new rankings are published on Monday after Luke Donald failed to win The Heritage on Sunday.
Although Westwood sealed a three-stroke victory at the Indonesian Masters earlier in the day, his compatriot Donald had the chance to take over at the top because the Heritage carries more ranking points than the Asian Tour event.
American Brandt Snedeker won The Heritage in a thrilling playoff with Luke Donald on Sunday, denying the Briton the chance to become world number for the first time on Monday.
