Rankings, Dubai, FedEx Updates: March 2

Official World Golf Rankings

Adam Scott returned to the top 10 for the first time this year, winning the Honda Classic to rise from 13th to 9th. Scott was ranked No. 1 as late as August of 2014, but had slid further and further away from the top spot after not winning a tournament in 2015.

Honda runner-up Sergio Garcia also saw a serious uptick in his spot. Ranked in the top 5 two years ago, Garcia rose from 19th to 12th this week.

Scott’s rise bounced Branden Grace out of the top 10 to No. 11.

Perth International winner Louis Oosthuizen rose back into the top 20 at No. 19.

Jordan Spieth remained No. 1 for a 17th straight week and 23rd overall. Former No. 1 Tiger Woods, still idle with no return date set, fell one spot to No. 446.
