Jon Rahm moved up a notch in the Official World Golf Ranking following a successful title defense at the Open de Espana.
Rahm cruised to a five-shot victory over fellow Spaniard Rafa Cabrera-Bello, and as a result he jumped ahead of Justin Rose from No. 5 to No. 4 in the latest rankings. It’s the first time Rahm has been ranked inside the top 4 since June 2018.
There were additional moves inside the top 10, as Patrick Cantlay jumped one spot to No. 6 thanks to his playoff loss at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open while Bryson DeChambeau went from 10th to eighth after tying for fourth in Las Vegas.
Kevin Na edged Cantlay on the second hole of overtime at TPC Summerlin, and his second win of the year bumped him from 40th to 24th. Cabrera-Bello jumped four spots to No. 34 with his runner-up finish in Europe, while Adam Hadwin’s second straight top-5 helped the Canadian move up three more spots to No. 45.
