Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell won the Andalucia Masters Sunday at Valderrama in Sotogrande, Spain, closing with a 3-over 74 for a two-stroke victory.

McDowell, also the U.S. Open winner and Wales Open champion this year, finished at 3 under. Northern Ireland's Gareth Maybin (76), Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen (69) and Ireland's Damien McGrane (72) tied for second.

German star Martin Kaymer needed a top-two finish to take the top spot from Tiger Woods in the world ranking, but closed with a 75 to tie for 21st.

England's Lee Westwood took the top ranking, becoming the first European since Nick Faldo in 1994 to be No. 1, and the 13th player to be No. 1 since the ranking system began in 1986.

Woods had been No. 1 since the week before the 2005 U.S. Open, where he was runner-up. He won the British Open a month later and his ranking rarely has been threatened since.
