World Rankings: Hatton now 22nd

 

Tyrrell Hatton, the 25-year-old Englishman who on Sunday became the first man to successfully defend his Alfred Dunhill Links title, has soared from 29th to 22nd on the latest official World Ranking list which otherwise shows little change of any consequence among its top 30.

Outside of Hatton, this week's rankings climbers making the most significant moves were Brendan Steele, Sunday's successful defender of the 2017/18 US PGA Tour's Safeway Open, Tyler Duncan the rookie who finished in joint 5th place behind him after leading most of the way, and Ross Fisher whose stunning 61 in the final round of the Dunhill Links set a course record for the Old Course at St Andrew's and hoisted him into second place behind Hatton.

Steele edged into the Top-50 bubble with its many advantages and entry tickets, climbing from 55th to 45th and Fisher did likewise, in his case moving up from 59th to 47th. Duncan, meanwhile, rocketed 79 places from 454th to 375th.

At the top end of the Rankings Dustin Johnson continued his reign as the World No 1 with fellow American Jordan Spieth at No 2, Japan's Hideki Matsuyama at No 3, yet another American, Justin Thomas, the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup champion and soon to be named Player of the Year, at No 4 and the fast-rising Spanish PGA Tour rookie Jon Rahm at No 5.
