After his second win in the last three months, Patton Kizzire made another significant move in the latest Official World Golf Rankings.

Kizzire outlasted James Hahn in a six-hole playoff to capture the Sony Open in Hawaii, just three starts after he won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba for his first career PGA Tour victory. As a result, he rose from No. 105 to a career-best 54th in the world. Hahn, who was in search of his third career playoff victory on Tour and shot a final-round 62, jumped from No. 83 to No. 59.

Tom Hoge, who appeared in position for his maiden win until a double bogey on the 70th hole, moved from No. 392 to No. 214 after a solo third-place finish.

The only change among the OWGR top 20 came at No. 20, where Brian Harman moved up three spots and past Rafael Cabrera-Bello following a T-4 finish in Hawaii.

The top 10 remains unchanged for another week, with Dustin Johnson still atop the rankings followed by Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas and Hideki Matsuyama. Justin Rose remains sixth with Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka, Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia rounding out the top 10.

Still two weeks away from his first competitive start of the year, Tiger Woods moved up two spots to No. 647 in the world.
