Wesley Bryan Rises Into Top 40

Once known solely as a trick-shot artist, Wesley Bryan jumped into the real world of golf with his win at the RBC Heritage on Sunday, and into the top 40 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Bryan rose from 73rd to 37th with his victory at Hilton Head in his home state of South Carolina last Sunday. Bryan ended 2016 ranked 127th.

There was only one move in the Top 10, where Adam Scott reclaimed #10, knocking Justin Thomas down to #11. Just 0.021 points separates the two in the average points total.

RBC Heritage third-place finisher Ollie Schniederjans moved up from 136th to 102nd this week, and has climbed 85 spots in the past three months.

Euro champion Edoardo Molinari soared up 366 spots to No. 245 after his win on Sunday. He has risen 716 spots since the beginning of the year as he battles past injuries. He has a ways to go to catch brother Francesco, who is ranked No. 30.
