Though Dustin Johnson left Shinnecock Hills without the U.S. Open trophy, his third-place finish solidified his position back at the top of the world rankings. Johnson now leads No.2 Justin Thomas by more than a full point, with No.3 Justin Rose another half-point behind Thomas.

Brooks Koepka rose to a career-best fourth, close enough to engage in some jockeying with Thomas and Rose on the tier below Johnson.

Tommy Fleetwood also matched his career best at No.10 for the third time this year. He also cracked the Top 10 after the WGC Mexico Championship and The Players, but both times slipped back within two weeks.

1. Dustin Johnson (1st) – 9.96
2. Justin Thomas (2) – 8.76
3. Justin Rose (3) – 8.28
