Tiger Woods up to world No 6 following Masters victory as Dustin Johnson reclaims No 1 spot
Tiger Woods is back inside the world’s top 10 for the first time since July 2014 following his sensational Masters victory.
The 43-year-old’s one-shot win at Augusta propelled him to six in the world – his highest ranking since falling to a career-low 1,199 in 2017.
At the top of the rankings, Dustin Johnson has replaced Justin Rose as world No 1 after he finished in a tie for second at Augusta alongside Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka, who has leapfrogged Rory McIlroy into third.
Justin Thomas, who finished tied 12th in the year’s first major, remains world No 5, but he now has Woods breathing down his neck.
Francesco Molinari is seventh after he saw his challenge collapse on the back nine and the top 10 is completed by Americans Bryson DeChambeau, Schauffele, and Rickie Fowler.
