World Rankings: Bubba's the big mover

 

This week's big mover on the Official World Golf Rankings list is the 39-year-old, Florida-based American left-hander Bubba Watson.

After his third PGA Tour win this year at the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, on Sunday, Watson has soared seven places from No 20 to 13th in the world, just one rung below Englishman Paul Casey who he reeled in and beat by three shots.

There was no Rankings movement this week in the dozen places above Casey, however.

Dustin Johnson continues to head Justin Thomas, Justin Rose and Brooks Koepke at the top end.

But Matt Wallace, the Englishman who beat a strong European Tour field in the BMW International Open in Germany at the weekend, jumped 25 places from 91st to 66th and the runners-up there, Martin Kaymer, Thorbjørn Olesen and Mikko Korhonen from 127th to 103rd, from 75th to 65th and from 111th to 96th respectively.

With the Ryder Cup coming up in September, it is interesting to note that right now, the Americans hold two of the top three spots on the Rankings list, three of the top five, five of the top 10 and eight of the top 20 as against Europe's nine.

In other words, while the Americans do have a slight edge in the rankings, it's not by very much at all.
