Following his win at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday, Dustin Johnson rose from third place in the Official World Golf Ranking to second, one spot ahead of former number one Jordan Spieth.
Johnson’s victory at WGC Bridgestone, together with his impressive win at the U.S. Open at Oakmont, propelled him up the world rankings in speedy fashion. He hasn’t quite caught Jason Day, who is more than two points ahead. Johnson is ahead of Spieth by just a fraction of a point.
Both Johnson and Spieth (who finished T3 at the WGC Bridgestone) have now also secured their spots on the American Ryder Cup team, according to a tweet posted this morning by Team USA. The Ryder Cup will take place at Hazeltine in the fall.
