Updated: June 27, 2011

Rory McIlroy has moved up to a career-high third in the world following his victory in the US Open last weekend.

The County Down golfer moved ahead of Germany’s Martin Kaymer after the latter failed to finish in the top eight at the BMW International Open in Munich. Current number one Luke Donald and Lee Westwood are now the only players that are ranked higher than McIlroy at the present time.

McIlroy has taken a three-week break after his eight-shot victory at Congressional.He has already confirmed that he will contest the Irish Open in Killarney later in the year and this has come as a huge boost for the tournament which is still without a sponsor.
