KAPALUA, Hawaii – The top seven in the Official World Golf Ranking remained unchanged after the year’s first week, but there were some major moves not much further down the list.
With his win at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Dustin Johnson jumped from 23rd all the way to 12th. He is just one spot ahead of Steve Stricker, who moved up five places thanks to a runner-up finish.
Meanwhile, with a third-place finish, Brandt Snedeker climbed two places to No. 8, the highest ranking of his career.
