Fowler Rises to 9th in World

Rickie Fowler’s win at The Players Championship saw him rise to No. 9 in the world, up four spots from last week.  Sergio Garcia finished third, and moved up from ninth to seventh.

Rory McIlroy is ranked No. 1 in the world for the 41st week in a row and the 80th overall of his career. McIlroy is only the fourth player in the history of the Official World Golf Rankings to hold the ranking for at least 80 weeks in a career, joining Tiger Woods, Greg Norman, and Nick Faldo.

Fowler’s rise bumped Adam Scott out of the Top 10 to No. 11. Scott was ranked No. 1 a year ago at this time and ended 2014 ranked third.

Everyone’s favorite rankings punching bag,  Woods dropped eight spots to No. 133. AfrAsia Bank winner George Coetzee rose 11 spots to No. 52.
