Justin Rose Moves To World No. 1 Despite Week Off

Despite sitting out the Sentry Tournament of Champions, Justin Rose has returned to the top spot in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Rose, who started the week as world No. 2, joined Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson as the only 2018 champions who skipped the winners-only Kapalua event.

The 38-year old Englishman champion leapfrogged Brooks Koepka for the prime ranking slot, after the reigning U.S. Open and PGA Champion struggled to a 24th place finish in Maui.

Koepka dropped to No. 2, followed by Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Bryson DeChambeau, with Xander Schauffele moving to a career-best of No. 6 after securing a one-shot come-from-behind win in Hawaii.

Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari and Tony Finau rounded out the top 10.
