World Rankings: DeChabeau up to No 12

 

Bryson DeChambeau's 4-stroke victory in the Northern Trust on Sunday has rocketed him from No 21 to 12th place on the latest World Rankings list.

The unconventional 24-year-old American who now also sits atop the FedEx Cup standings as a result of his victory in the first of the four FedEx Cup playoffs, started 2018 at No 99 in the rankings and helped by his first win this season in The Memorial at Jack Nicklaus' Muirfield Village in May, had moved into the 20s before his latest surge.

The up-and-coming Tony Finau who finished second in the Northern Trust also made a big jump on the rankings list. He's up from 30th to 18th.

The other major mover this week was Andrea Pavan who edged out the seasoned Padraig Harrington to win the D+D REAL Czech Open in Prague on Sunday. 

Pavan, who says he was inspired by fellow Italian Franciso Molinari's high-flying run of victories this year, including his stunning Open Championship triumph at Carnoustie, hoisted himself 113 places from 253rd to 140th.
