Hoffman, Pieters gain 11 rankings places

 

Ahead of this week's PGA Championship, the final major of the year, Charlie Hoffman and Thomas Pieters have made substantial moves in the World Rankings.

This as a result of their strong finishes at last week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, but Firestone winner Hideki Matsuyama remains at No 3 on a list with only one minor shift among the game's top-10.

This is at No 10 where Richie Fowler somewhat unexpectedly ousts US Open champion, Brooks Koepke. 

In the meantime, both Hoffman and Pieters jumped 11 places on the World Ranking list on the strengths of their respective 3rd and 4th place finishers at Firestone with Hoofman ousting Francesco Molinari at No 2O and Pieters moving from 34th to 23rd at the expense of Tyrrell Hatton.

Zach Johnson, who finished runner up to Matsuyama, made the biggest leap of all the Bridgestone front runners, rocketing from No 71 to 41st in the world.
