World Rankings: Reed's up 13 rungs to 11th

 

Patrick Reed, the 27-year-old Texas-born, Louisiana schoolboy star and Georgia college standout who won his first major at the 82nd Masters on Sunday, has lept 13 places from 24th to 11th on the latest World Rankings list.

And Dustin Johnson, who finished in a share of 10th place, 12 shots off the pace on 281, did just enough to hang on to his World No 1 crown from Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm and Jordan Spieth, who were all positioned to overtake him if they had won.

Spieth, who shot a record matching final round 64 to charge up into third place at Augusta National on Sunday, a shot behind Rickie Fowler and a shot in front of Rahm, has meanwhile leapfrogged Rahm into 3rd place with Fowler climbing two rungs into 6th place.

Rory McIlroy who started the final round in second place seeking to triumph in the only major he has yet to win, but came unstuck with a closing 74, remained at No 7 behind the promoted Fowler.

In other top-10 changes, Japan's Hideki Matsuyama slipped from 6th to 8th and the defending Masters champion Sergio Garcia from 9th to 10th after blowing himself out of the Masters with that horrific 13 at the unforgiving Ray's Creek on the par-5 13th at Augusta.
