Bryson DeChambeau returns to top 10

After winning Arnold Palmer Invitational, DeChambeau improves to No. 6 in world as Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson continue to fall

6: Position in the Official World Golf Ranking for Bryson DeChambeau, who won the PGA Tour’s Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday at Bay Hill in Orlando, Fla. With his eighth career victory, DeChambeau improved five spots in the world order and was within one place of his career-high ranking. The top five – Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele, in order – remained unchanged, with Johnson atop the OWGR for a 29th consecutive week. Heading in the other direction, Tiger Woods continued his slide, falling from 53rd to 57th, with no end in sight as he recuperates from at least two rounds of surgeries on a right leg mangled in a single-car vehicle rollover Feb. 23. Also trending downward, Phil Mickelson dropped out of the top 100 for the first time since August 1993. That was 1,425 consecutive weeks among the top 100, yet none as No. 1. In late 2019, Mickelson’s run of 1,353 consecutive weeks in the top 50 came to a halt.
