The career of Patrick Cantlay has been hampered by injury, and the American began the year as world-number-1866; but thanks to a successful season including five top 10s and, most recently, his first PGA TOUR win, he now sits 42nd in the world rankings.

Cantlay came out on top of a three-man play-off to win the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and boost his ranking by a further 25 places from 67th.

Whee Kim and Alex Cejka were the men that fell short of Cantlay in the play-off but do take respective rises of 148th to 114th and 300th to 196th.

Justin Rose made it back-to-back wins with a one-shot victory at the Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour to follow-up his WGC-HSBC Champions title from the week prior. The 37-year-old is unmoved in sixth, though does close the gap on Jon Rahm in fifth to just over 0.1 points.

Both runners up at Regnum Carya, Nicolas Colsaerts and Dylan Frittelli, move inside the top 100 with Colsaerts up to 98th and Frittelli up to 76th. Fourth placed Padraig Harrington – 170th to 126th – gets closer to the top century whilst fifth placed Thorbjørn Olesen – 87th to 77th – strengthens his place inside it.

Inside the top 20 only Rory McIlroy (9th to 8th) and Sergio Garcia (12th to 11th) make positive movements, although neither played last week. Matthew Fitzpatrick, tied 11th in Turkey, takes a small hop from 33rd to 31st.
