Sungjae Im moves up to No. 25 with 1st PGA Tour title

Despite stalling at Honda, Tommy Fleetwood improves to 10th in the world ranking, displacing Tiger Woods, who falls out of top 10 for 1st time since winning 2019 Masters

25: Position in the Official World Golf Ranking for South Korea’s Sungjae Im, who improved nine spots to a career-high spot after winning the Honda Classic. Im, 21, the PGA Tour’s reigning rookie of the year, posted his first career victory after opening the 2019-20 season with a runner-up and a T-3 sandwiched around a victory on his native Korean Tour in the fall. The top of the OWGR remained unchanged, with Rory McIlroy at No. 1 for a fourth consecutive week. Tommy Fleetwood, whose watery bogey on the final hole at the Honda dropped him to third place, moved up two spots, to 10th, in the world order. Tiger Woods, who holds the record for most weeks at No. 1, with 683, dropped out of the top 10 for the first time since he won the Masters last year, slipping to No. 11.
