Updated (5/6/2019): For the 2019 season, through 18 tournament weeks – Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA Tour and Volvo China Open on the European Tour.
The top 10 remains intact from last week, with Dustin Johnson holding the world’s No. 1 spot. The next 10 (11-20) also stayed the same with just a few players swapping positions between Nos. 12 and 15.
In fact the only change from the week prior was Kevin Na, who moved into the No. 50 position (from 53), swapping spots with Thorbjorn Olesen.
Jordan Spieth remains an enigma. The former world No. 1, and three-time major champion – who’s taken the the past two weeks off, has fallen to No. 39 in the world. It’s his worst ranking since August 11, 2013, when he was ranked No. 54 at 19-years old.
Following a second-place finish at the Wyndham a week later (Aug. 18), the teenager Spieth moved to No. 36 and by season’s end he was 22nd. By the end of 2014 he was ranked 9th and never fell out of the top 10 for the next four years. He opened the 2018 year ranked No. 2.
