Jason Day did not attend the Farmers Insurance Open last weekend, thus failing to defend his title, which caused him to drop to No. 3 in the world, behind new No. 2 Rory McIlroy.
McIlroy is averaging 10.3156 points per event, Day dipped to 10.2120. Both have a sizable deficit behind Jordan Spieth, who finished second at the Singapore Open and is averaging 12.1191 points per event.
Of the current “Big Three”, Spieth is the only one to have gained points so far in 2016.
Qatar Masters winner Branden Grace just missed climbing into the Top 10 by defending his title. Grace is at 4.8974 points, while Jim Furyk is 10th at 4.9875.
Farmers Insurance Open winner Brandt Snedker vaulted 12 spots from 24th to 12th with his win. Snedeker has rocketed 37 spots since the end of 2015.
Inactive Tiger Woods dropped 10 spots to No. 436 in the world.
