World Rankings: Knox, Na on the move

 
The big movers on the Official World Golf Rankings list this week are Scotland's Russell Knox and American Kevin Na.
 
Knox jumps 37 places from 87th into golf's all-important top 50 bubble at No 49 on the strength of his win at the Irish Open on Sunday against a strong field that included the highly-ranked Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy, while Na moves up 24 places from 65th to No 41 after winning the US PGA Tour's newly-named The Military Tribute at The Greenbrier.
 
New Zealand's Ryan Fox, who lost the playoff to Knox at the Irish Open, hoisted himself from 124th to 87th and Kelly Kraft, the second place finisher at the Greenbrier, from 186th to 124th.
 
Although none of them played any competitive golf last week, Dustin Johnson continues to wear the World No 1 crown with Justin Thomas at No 2, Justin Rose at No 3 and Brooks Koepke at No 4.  
 
Rahm, who finished in a tie for 4th at the Irish Open, strengthened his position at No 5 in an unchanged top-10 with Jordan Spieth at No 6, Rickie Fowler at No 7, McIlroy at No 8, Jason Day at No 9 and Tommy Fleetwood at no 10.
