Among the spoils of Jon Rahm's U.S. Open victory is a return to the top of the Official World Golf Ranking.

Rahm supplanted Dustin Johnson atop the rankings thanks to the Spaniard's triumph at Torrey Pines. Johnson had been No. 1 since winning in last year's playoffs. Rahm previously was No. 1 for a total of four weeks, prior to DJ's ascension.

Johnson is now in the second spot, following his tie for 19th last week, ending his streak of 43 consecutive weeks in the lead position.

Louis Oosthuizen, who finished solo second at the U.S. Open, moved up six spots to No. 12. Harris English, who was solo third, also jumped six places to No. 19.

The biggest mover of the week was Guido Migliozzi. The Italian tied for fourth at Torrey Pines and went from 107th to a career-best 72nd.
