Tabuena Into Top 225 With Win

Miguel Tabuena, who won the Philippine Open on Saturday, rose 141 spots to No. 216 from No. 357 in the latest Official World Golf Rankings.

The rankings will hold through the end of the year, as the Philippine Open was the last tournament of the big three Tours for 2015.

The victory made Tabuena the top-ranked player from the Philippines, surpassing No. 228 Angelo Que.

American Jordan Spieth enjoyed his seventh straight week and 13th overall at No. 1. On January 4, 2016, Spieth will tie Davi Duval for 12th on the all-time list of weeks at No. 1 with 15, and the following week tie Fred Couples for 11th at 16 weeks.

Eight of the top 10 players in the world at the end of 2014 are still there at the end of 2015. Fallen from the top 10 are Adam Scott, who was No. 1 for a time in 2014 and No. 3 at year’s end who now sits 12th; and Sergio Garcia, who was No. 5 at the end of 2015 but is now 11th.

Next week, we will take a closer look at the rankings, breaking down who took the biggest jumps and biggest falls (Tiger) in 2015.
