With the ninth PGA Tour title of his career at the Fort Worth Invitational, Justin Rose has reached the highest world ranking of his career, third.
Rose overcame Brooks Koepka by three shots and has climbed two places from fifth in the rankings whilst the latter has jumped back inside the top 10 from 11th to ninth.
The majority of the movement inside the world’s top 20 comes from Europe though, following the European Tour’s flagship event the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
Francesco Molinari reigned supreme on Sunday and jumps 12 places to 20th, Rory McIlroy was second best and is back up to sixth from eighth and Alex Noren (tied third) and Tommy Fleetwood (tied 20th) move from 19th to 17th and 12th to 11th respectively.
Also following high finishes at Wentworth there are climbs for Ian Poulter (28th to 27th), Kiradech Aphibarnrat (31st to 30th), Branden Grace (33rd to 31st), Matthew Fitzpatrick (40th to 37th), Ross Fisher (44th to 41st), Alexander Björk (78th to 76th), Shane Lowry (75th to 72nd), Byeong Hun An (87th to 85th) and Matt Wallace (89th to 87th).
Back to the USA and in third place behind Rose and Koepka at Colonial Country Club was Emiliano Grillo who climbs a healthy 16 places to 52nd, and behind Grillo was Kevin Na who boosts his ranking 13 places to 62nd. Louis Oosthuizen, tied fifth, is up from 36th to 33rd also.
There were a further eight OWGR recognised events alongside the PGA and European Tour this week and they have paid fruitful dividends for winners such as Cameron Davis (162nd to 105th), Shota Akiyoshi (364th to 184th) and Minkyu Kim (715th to 369th).
