Despite finishing in a tie for 52nd at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Patrick Reed took away enough Ryder Cup points to flip-flop positions with Bubba Watson in the latest standings. Reed moved to No. 3, while Watson -- who withdrew after a first-round 83, citing allergies -- dropped to No. 4.

That was the only movement in the current top 10.

Here's a look at the current top 12 (remember, the top 9 after the PGA Championship in August automatically qualify, while U.S. Captain Tom Watson fills out the team with three captain's picks):

1. Jimmy Walker 2. Dustin Johnson 3. Patrick Reed 4. Bubba Watson 5. Jason Dufner 6. Harris English 7. Phil Mickelson 8. Zach Johnson 9. Webb Simpson ----------------------------- 10. Ryan Moore 11. Chris Kirk 12. Matt Every

Matt Every, who notched his first career PGA Tour win at Bay Hill on Sunday, proved to be this week's biggest mover. Entering last week, Every registered at No. 34, but the win bumped him up 22 spots to No. 12. In 11 starts this season, Every has seven top-25 finishes -- five of those resulting in a top 10.

Runner-up Keegan Bradley also headed in the right direction, soaring from No. 31 to No. 15. It was Bradley's second top-10 in 10 starts this season, but his first since October.

Tiger Woods wasn't able to attempt to defend his title at Bay Hill due to his ailing back. He dropped one spot in the latest standings to No. 41.

This week, the PGA Tour is in San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open -- one of two events before the Masters.
