In his last 10 starts Justin Rose has amassed 10 top 10s, six top fives and three wins, most recently at the Indonesian Masters this past weekend.
The first of his three victories, at the WGC-HSBC Champions, catapulted the Englishman from 13th in the world to sixth; the past two, though – last weekend and at the Turkish Airlines Open – have seen Rose unmoved and unrewarded, remaining in sixth.Embed from Getty Images
Ultimately, in his last six events Rose has won three and been top five in all-but-one. Only one of those finishes has seen him climb the world rankings in any capacity.
The Indonesian Masters was the only OWGR-recognised event this week and so ranking changes are few and far between. Yusaku Miyazato has taken a step towards the top 50 with his fourth place finish in Jakarta to follow up his win at the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup. He is up from 58th to 52nd.
Phachara Khongwatmai came runner-up to Rose and is up from 244th to 166th, whilst Scott Vincent, third, climbs 123 places to 322nd. Younghan Song battled to a tied sixth with a final round of 66 and makes a climb inside the world’s top 100, at 99th from 104th.
After a one week swap, Jon Rahm and Hideki Matsuyama re-trade places in fourth and fifth, with the Spaniard leapfrogging Matsuyama. Tommy Fleetwood moves back towards his highest ever ranking of 14th with a one place hop to 18th, dropping Alex Noren down a place in the process.
