Shane Lowry is up one place to 31st in the latest world rankings following his share of 39th place at the Masters.

The Offaly man had made a blistering start to this year's tournament but slipped back after a difficult second round.

However, he ended the Masters on a high after a hole-in-one in Round 4.

Rory McIlroy remains in third overall, while new Masters champion Danny Willett is up 12 places to 9th.

Jason Day and Jordan Spieth remain first and second respectively.
