RSS

Jason Day’s second PGA Tour victory of the year has him ranked No. 4 in the world. Day, who captured the RBC Canadian Open on Sunday, moved from ninth to fourth in the Official World Golf Ranking.

It ties his career-best ranking. He moved to fourth earlier this year, as well, with a win at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Canadian Open runner-up Bubba Watson remained at No. 3, though he did slightly narrow the gap between him and No. 2 Jordan Spieth. That margin is now just 4.04 points.

Spieth, meanwhile, inched closer to world No. 1 Rory McIlroy, cutting his deficit to 0.88 points (from 0.94). Both players were inactive this past week.

Danny Willett won the European Tour’s Omega European Masters to move up eight spots to 24th. It’s the first time he’s cracked the top 25.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Tiger Woods enters his Quicken Loans National ranked 266th, sandwiched between Robert Rock and Max Orrin.

Here is the top 10: 1. McIlroy; 2. Spieth; 3. Watson; 4. Day; 5. Dustin Johnson; 6. Jim Furyk; 7. Justin Rose; 8. Rickie Fowler; 9. Henrik Stenson; 10. Sergio Garcia.
