World Rankings: Rahm up to a career high 9th

 

Jon Rahm's move from 11th place into a top 10 spot at a career high 8th on the strength of his Irish Open win on Sunday was perhaps the only move of any real significance among the game's big guns this week.

Dustin Johnson continues to rule the roost with Hideki Matsuyama in second place, Jordan Spieth third and Roy McIlroy 4th and with only a few other minor adjustments among the Top 30 ranked players this week, the standout ranking move of the week was made lower down by Xander Schauffele, the 23-year-old US young gun who won his first US PGA Tour title at the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday.

He has rocketed 77 places from 159th last week to No 82 this week, and after starting his year in the low 300s, then finishing T5 at the US Open last month, and now in 1st place this week just past, he is looking to go even higher before the year is out.

In the Rolex Women's World Rankings, South Korea's So Yeon Ryo has edged into her 3rd straight week as the World No 1 with Thailand's Ariya Jutanugan, the women she replaced, still in 2nd place and Lexi Thompson in 3rd, the American having pushed Kiwi Lydia Ko into 4th place.

The biggest top-level mover of the week, however, is Canada's Brook Henderson, who hoisted herself four places to No 8.
