LONDON (AP) — Tiger Woods has dropped to eighth in the world golf rankings after being overtaken by Paul Casey of England.

Casey moved up to seventh in the rankings released Monday despite missing the cut last week at the Wells Fargo Championship. Woods skipped the event because of knee and Achilles' tendon injuries.

Fourth-ranked Phil Mickelson of the United States is now the only non-European player in the top seven.
