CIMB Classic winner Justin Thomas vaulted up the charts to No. 30 in the world following his win in Malaysia on Sunday. Formerly known largely as Jordan Spieth’ good friend on Twitter, Thomas has finished third in his other event this year, the Frys.com Open.
Jason Day retained his No. 1 ranking for a third straight week, his fourth overall. Rory McIlroy, the only one of the Big Three active this week, narrowed the gap between himself and Jordan Spieth to barely more than a point with his sixth-place finish at the Turkish Airlines Open.
Victor Dubuisson climbed from 69th to 35th with his win at the Turkish Airlines Open.
Adam Scott, who finished second to Thomas in Kuala Lumpur, rose four spots from No. 16 to No. 12. Scott had started 2015 ranked No. 3.
Tiger Woods slipped 11 spots to No. 362.
