Dustin Johnson is once again inside the top 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
After winning the FedEx St. Jude Classic in his second start following nearly three months out with a back injury, Johnson moved up 10 spots to 10th this week.
The top nine in the world ranking remain unchanged. Luke Donald leads Rory McIlroy by 1.27 points for the top spot. Despite winning the Nordea Masters on the European Tour on Saturday, Lee Westwood could not pass McIlroy for second.
Despite missing the cut in Memphis, Spencer Levin cracked the top 60 in the ranking. Though he earned no world ranking points, Levin improved one position over last week. The top 60 in the ranking as of this week are exempt into the U.S. Open, landing Levin a spot at The Olympic Club.
Despite being known as one of the best athletes on Tour, Dustin Johnson has been forced to withdraw from a PGA Tour event because of an injury for the third consecutive week. Read More
