Thorbjørn Olesen and Soren Kjeldsen’s efforts gave Denmark a maiden World Cup of Golf win, but proved to be in vein individually as the pair are unmoved in the world rankings.
The Danish duo remain in 67 and 45 respectively following a four shot victory at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia.

France came in second but their representatives, Victor Dubuisson and Romain Langasque, have only seen a fall in the rankings; Dubuisson moves from 79th to 80th and his partner falls three places to 195th.
It’s likewise for third placed China as Li Haotong stays put in 130th and Wu Ashun sees a menial rise of one place from 171st.
The stagnant effect comes as a result of the lack of World Ranking Points on offer at the World Cup due to a small and weak field.
At the top of the rankings Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose swapped places in 14th and 15th with the Spaniard leapfrogging the Olympic gold medalist and Tyrrell Hatton’s rise continues as he moves up to 23rd from 24th.
Yuta Ikeda’s win on the Japan Golf Tour at the Casio World Open proved fruitful as he breaks the top 40 in 37th from 44th.
