That big win everyone seemed to be waiting for? Jordan Spieth delivered last week in Australia, where on a brutal golf course he shot a closing 63 to win the Australian Open by six shots.
It was the 21-year-old’s second professional win, and first since the 2013 John Deere. As a result, Spieth crept closer to the top 10 in the world ranking, rising from No. 14 to No. 11.
Earlier this year he was ranked as high as No. 7, following a run in the spring when he tied for second at the Masters, finished 12th at Colonial and shared fourth place at The Players.
Here’s the top 10 in the world heading into the Hero World Challenge: No. 1 Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Scott, Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Jason Day, Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar. Hero Challenge host Tiger Woods is currently 24th.
