World No.1

Jordan Spieth has taken the World No. 1 ranking again 9/ 8 2015, he moved up the rankings after missing the cut at the Deutsche Bank Championship, which Rickie Fowler won , but thanks to Rory McIlroy’s struggles and complications of the world ranking system, he now has the No. 1 slot, so how long can he keep it? Rory has only played 2 of the last 10 weeks thanks to an ankle injury and lost the ranking.

It’s a very close race at the moment, with Jason Day playing the best golf lately and he is in the thick of the race to get to No.1 in the golf World Rankings. The FedEx Cup playoffs take a one-week break next week, putting a gap in the four-event series.

Both Spieth and McIlroy will be having this week off, neither will earn points. As the math goes, that benefits McIlroy, who will regain the top spot heading into the third leg at the BMW Championship.

 

Here is how Jordan Spieth has become the World No. 1
