World Golf Rankings: Rose Stays at 6; Cantlay In Top 50

Justin Rose

A look at the Official World Golf Rankings following a week where Justin Rose won for the second straight week, and Patrick Cantlay captured his maiden PGA Tour victory.


  • No Movement: A win in Turkey did nothing for Justin Rose’s world ranking, as the Englishman remained at No. 6. However, he’s essentially tied with Jon Rahm for the fifth spot – just 0.012 points behind.
  • Top Heavy: Three Americans, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas, remain locked in to the top 3 spots.
  • Static List: The top 20 remained nearly static, with only Rory McIlroy (No. 9 to 8) and Henrik Stenson, along with Sergio Garcia (No. 12 to 11) and Jason Day, swapping positions.
  • Young Guns: Only three players in the top 10 are 30 or older: DJ (33), Rose (37), and Stenson (41).
  • Majorless: Just three players in the top 10 have not won a major: Hideki Matsuyama, Rahm, and Rickie Fowler.
  • Winless: McIlroy is the only player in the top 10 who went winless in 2017.
  • Welcome: The only new entrant into the top 50 is Patrick Cantlay, who jumped 25 spots, to No. 42, following his win at the Shriners Open.
  • Goodbye: To make room for Cantlay, Gary Woodland is the odd man out – but not by much, as he moved down just one spot to 51.
