World Rankings: Fowler up to No 7

 

Rickie Fowler's stunning victory in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas on Sunday has enabled him to leapfrog Henrik Stenson and Brooks Koepke into 7th place on the latest official World Ranking list which continues to be headed by Dustin Johnson followed at Nos 2 and 3 by fellow Americans Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.

And Dylan Frittelli, the 29-year-old South African who won his second European Tour title this year at the Afrasian Bank Mauritius Open on Sunday, has hauled himself up 12 places from 67th to No 55 as he bids to take his ranking under 50 so as to qualifying for the majors and other important events in world golf.

He'll extend his bid at the Joburg Open later this week.

In the meantime Tiger Woods, who holds the record for the most number of weeks as the World No 1 at an astonishing 683 but had tumbled all the way down to No 1199 in the rankings when he made his come back last week from almost a year out recuperating from back surgery, has rocketed more than 500 places in the nether regions of the Rankings and hoisted himself from No 1199 in the World to No 668 on the strength of his tie for 9th at the Hero Challenge.
