France’s Romain Langasque cracks top 100

With a victory in Wales Open, his 1st on the European Tour, Langasque moves to a career-high No. 100 in the world order

100: Position in the Official World Golf Ranking for France’s Romain Langasque, who achieved a career high in the world order Monday after he won the ISPS Handa Wales Open, his first victory on the European Tour, a day earlier. Langasque, 25, who entered last week at No. 156 in the OWGR, had made three consecutive cuts on the U.K. Swing since the season restarted last month in Europe before his breakthrough victory at Celtic Manor Resort. American Dustin Johnson returned to No. 1 for a sixth reign since 2017 with his runaway victory at the PGA Tour’s Northern Trust. In doing so, Johnson bumped Jon Rahm to No. 2, Justin Thomas to No. 3 and Rory McIlroy to No. 4. The rest of the top 12 remained the same. American Daniel Berger jumped five spots, to 13th, with his third-place result at the Northern Trust. Berger has finished third or better in four of six starts since the PGA Tour resumed play in early June, beginning with a victory at Colonial.
