Rankings: Mac's on the move again

 

Rory McIlroy's weekend charge at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and his tie for fourth has seen the World No 3 leap-frog Australian Jason Day into the World No 2 spot just three weeks shy of The Masters.

But even with 9.1162 points, he is still a fair way behind Dustin Johnson's 11.685 points as he looks to regain the World No 1 crown he owned for a time a year or so back.

English young gun Tyrell Hatton, the man who tied with McIlroy, has, in the meantime, moved up two places from 16th to 14th, but Australian Marc Leishman Sunday's Arnold Palmer Invitational winner at Bay Hill, has made the most significant World Ranking advance this week, moving from 62nd into an all-important spot inside the top-50 bubble at No 32.

In this kind of position, he is guaranteed a place in all of this year's big events, including the majors and the four WGC championships.
