Daniel Berger Reaches Top 25; Frittelli Into Top 100

St. Jude Classic champion Daniel Berger has risen to No. 24 in the world following his victory at the tournament on Sunday. He was previously ranked No. 43.

Dylan Frittellli, winner of the Lyoness Open, rose from 104th to 76th with his inaugural win on the European Tour.

There was small movement in the Top 10, where both Jordan Spieth (No.5 ) and Henrik Stenson (No. 6) passed Sergio Garcia (No. 7). Garcia has played sparingly since winning The Masters in April, while Spieth and Stenson haev both done well in recent weeks.

American Dustin Johnson spent his 17th week at No. 1, moving him past Fred Couples into 13th place all-time.

St. Jude co-runner-up Charl Schwartzel moved up one spot to 16th, and Lyoness runner-up Rafa Cabrera Bello climbed to 28th.

New to the rankings was amateur Braden Thornberry, the American who finished tied for fourth at the St. Jude Classic. Thornberry is an amateur and chose to remain so. He recently won the NCAA title as an individual representing Mississippi State University.
