Rory McIlroy might have lost his No. 1 ranking on Sunday, but he reasserted himself as the man to beat in the Race to Dubai series, becoming the first player to top 3 million points thanks to his top 10 finish at the PGA Championship.
England’s Danny Willett remains in second place with 2.648 million points. It looked like he would catch and pass McIlroy sometime this summer after the Irishman’s injury, but a much faster than expected recovery put an end to that notion.
Justin Rose jumped up to fourth in the rankings this week with his strong finish at the PGA Championship.
