A bogey on the 72nd hole of the Valspar Championship left Patrick Cantlay just short of the title, but he does earn a rise of over 1100 places to 239th in the world rankings.
Making just his second start of the season and his eighth since 2013 having suffered numerous injury set backs, the 24-year-old earned his best ever PGA Tour finish in second and regained his tour card and now takes a rise back towards his best ever ranking of 176th.

Dominic Bozzelli was another to earn his best PGA Tour finish, at tied third, and in doing so climbs to 143rd from 233rd having previously missed three cuts in a row. Jim Herman joined Bozzelli in tied third but takes a smaller step from 89th to 76th himself.
Gavin Green finished second behind Chawrasia in New Delhi at the Hero Indian Open for his own best career finish and moves from 365th to 234th. Further down the rankings Scott Jamieson, 398th to 306th, and Matteo Manassero, 336th to 267th, make movement after finishing tied for third behind Green.Embed from Getty Images
Neither Phil Mickelson or Tyrrell Hatton made appearances this week but, after tied seventh and 10th place finishes respectively at the WGC-Mexico Championship last week and results elsewhere this week, both hop up one place to 18th (Mickelson) and 16th (Hatton). Similarly without an appearance this week but with shortcomings of those around him, Alexander Levy creeps back into the top century from 104th.
