Jordan Spieth New World No. 6

The Top 10 in the official world golf rankings keeps getting younger and younger.  Jordan Spieth rose to No. 6 in the world by winning the Valspar Open on Sunday.

Spieth was previously ranked 10th, and had never been ranked higher than eighth.

Meanwhile George Coetzee’s win at the Tshwane Open saw him jump in the rankings from 87th to 67th.

Rory McIlroy spent his 33rd straight week at No. 1 in the world, the 13th-longest streak in history. He broke his own career high of 32 weeks at No. 1 set between August of 2012 and March of 2013.

McIlroy has been ranked No. 1 for 72 weeks overall, fourth-most all-time.

Yet another idle week dropped Tiger Woods to No. 87 from No. 79. Woods was ranked 32nd to start the year.
