Winners Jones, Schwartzel See Big Gains

Australian Open winner Matt Jones jumped 30 spots in the latest Official World Golf Rankings, and Alfred Dunhill Championship victor Charl Schwartzel rose 15.

Jordan Spieth, who finished second to Jones down under by a single stroke, retained his hold on the No. 1 spot in the world. It’s Spieth fourth straight week at No. 1, a career best, and his 10th overall. He is the 14th golfer to hold the No. 1 spot for at least 10 weeks over the course of his career, and would tie Adam Scott at 11 weeks, good for 13th on the all-time list.

Jones climbed 30 spots to 51st from 81st while Schwartzel jumped 15 places to 35th.

Adam Scott, who finished tied with Spieth for second behind Jones in Australia, used the high finish to climb back into the top 10 for the first time in several months, moving from 12th to 10th.
