The Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, August 18, 2106 edition reflects the current holding pattern in the world of professional golf.

Sandwiched between an unusually busy major season and the PGA Tour playoffs, most of the leading players are busy catching their breath before the next pressure-packed segment of the season unfolds.

That means the Top 20 of the Fantasy Golf Rankings, August 18, 2016 edition look a lot like last week’s rankings. The Top five contains the same five players, although the order has been shuffled slightly.

At the top, Sweden’s Henrik Stenson is number one for a third consecutive week, consolidating his position with a second place finish in the inaugural Olympic Golf tournament.

Australian Jason Day logs a 22nd consecutive week in the Top 10, moving up a spot to number two. PGA champion Jimmy Walker, who like Day was idle this week, moved up a spot to third in our weekly survey.

Despite events on both sides of the Atlantic, there’s no change at the top in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, August 9, 2016 edition, as the tour catches it’s breath after a busy majors season.

The top five players this week, were in the exact same positions last week, as many of the top players took the week off to prepare for the upcoming PGA Tour playoffs and Olympic golf competition.

Open champion Henrik Stenson of Sweden remains in the #1 position for a second week, with a 360 point lead over second place Dustin Johnson, the 2016 U.S. Open champion.

Australia’s Jason Day, the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking, holds at number three, extending his streak of consecutive weeks in the Top 10 to 21.

PGA champion Jimmy Walker holds at number four, while young Englishmen Tyrell Hatton completes the top five, holding his place after a T17th at the Traveler’s Championship.

After a six-week run at number one for American Dustin Johnson, Sweden’s Henrik Stenson takes over the top spot in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, August 2, 2016 edition.

The Open Champion posted a solid 7th place finish at the PGA Championship, and that high finish, coupled with Johnson’s missed cut, moves him into the top spot by less than 200 points.

Johnson remains at #2, his eighth consecutive week in the top 10.

The number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking, Jason Day, jumps from 7th to 3rd, after his runner-up finish at Baltusrol. The Australian has spent 20 consecutive weeks in the Top 10, including a total of seven weeks at #1 in March and May of this year.

The big mover of the week is PGA Champion and first time major winner Jimmy Walker. The now six-time PGA tour winner improves 78 places to a career high 4th place ranking.

The name at the top of the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, July 19, 2016 edition, is unchanged from a week ago, but the lead over #2 has shrunk considerably.

U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson holds at number one for a 5th consecutive week, picking up some valuable ratings points with a solid T9 at the Open Championship in Troon.

DJ’s chart-topping run matches Jason Day for the longest number of consecutive weeks in the top spot. The 2016 Players Champion held the top spot for five consecutive weeks between May 3rd and May 31st.

Johnson’s lead has been reduced dramatically by Open champion Henrik Stenson, who jumps 11 spots to number two after picking up his first major championship title on Sunday. The Swede sits just 760 points behind the rankings leader and looks like a good bet to challenge DJ in the coming weeks.

The second place ranking matches Stenson’s best showing ever in the rankings. He was 2nd in our initial survey on November 16, 2015. The win also moves Henrik into 5th place in the Official World Golf Ranking.

With a tournament cancellation on the PGA Tour and many of the top players taking the week of before the Open Championship, the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, July 12, 2016 edition, look a lot like last week’s survey.

Dustin Johnson continues to hold a big lead over fellow American Scott Piercy, heading into the third major of the year. DJ, who sits second in the Official World Golf Ranking heading into play this week, looks poised to remain on top for a while, particularly if he can post another strong finish at Royal Troon. The Columbia, South Carolina native comes in riding a two-tournament winning streak, adding the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational two weeks ago to his recent U.S. Open victory.

Piercy may have had his first major as well, if it wasn’t for Johnson’s strong play, after finishing second in both events.

World number one Jason Day holds at #3 for second week, while Matt Kuchar remains in the fourth spot.

The only change in the Top 5 sees a pair of idle players swap positions as American Jim Furyk improves one spot to number five, knocking Northern Ireland’s Shane Lowry down to number six.

American Dustin Johnson extended his lead in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, July 5, 2016 edition.

The question now, is, can anyone catch him.

The reigning U.S. Open champion holds the number one spot for a third consecutive week after his win at the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone G.C.  He has a 1,950 point lead over number two ranked Scott Piercy, who’s finished second to DJ in both the U.S. Open and the Bridgestone. Piercy moves up three spots this week, his third consecutive week in the top five.

Johnson’s point total of 5,090 points is the highest total since our rankings started last November. He’s also moved up to a career high #2 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Former Number one Jason Day of Australia moves back into the Top three, up from #6 a week ago, after a T3 at Firestone. The number one ranked player in the world won’t be happy after a back nine collapse on Sunday cost him another WGC title.

Not surprisingly, the week after the year’s second major saw minimal movement at the top of the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, June 28, 2016 edition.

That means that American Dustin Johnson, fresh off his U.S. Open victory, holds onto the top spot in our weekly rankings for a second week.

DJ holds a nearly 1,500 point lead over Ireland’s Shane Lowry, and returns to action this week at the World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational.

Veteran Jim Furyk and Spain’s Sergio Garcia make small moves within the top 10, after posting  strong results on the weekend.

Furyk jumps from 5th to 3rd after a tie for 21st at the Quicken Loans Invitational. Garcia is also up two spots moving 6 to 4, after a 5th place finish at the BMW International in Germany.

American Scott Piercy slips from 5th to 3rd, to round out the Top Five.

American Dustin Johnson overcame a field of the best golfers in the world, and some unnecessary grandstanding by U.S.G.A rules officials, to win the U.S. Open, for his first major championship, and claim the number one spot in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, June 21, 2106 edition.

Johnson, who infamously three-putted on the 72nd green in last year’s national championship to lose to Jordan Spieth by a shot, moves up to 3rd in the Official World Golf Ranking, after a 69 on Sunday gave him a three shot victory over a trio of challengers.

DJ’s run at number one could be a lengthy one. The 32-year old holds an impressive 1,660 point lead over Ireland’s Shane Lowry, who shared second place at Oakmont with Americans Jim Furyk and Scott Piercy. Lowry moved up from 153rd in last week’s rankings, and makes his first top 20 appearance in our survey that started in November 2015.

Piercy and Furyk also claim top five spots as, predictably, the rankings are completely transformed due to the major championship bonus points on offer this week. Piercy lands at #3, an improvement of 186 places over his ranking on June 10th, while Furyk, making just his fifth start since his return from wrist surgery, makes the biggest jump of the week from 286th to 5th.

The only holdover in the Top 5 is World #1 Jason Day of Australia, who holds in the fourth position after an 8th place finish in the second major of the year.

With many of the world’s best players resting and preparing for this week’s second major of the year, at least one player took advantage to make a major jump in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, June 14, 2016 edition.

23-year old American, Daniel Berger, picked up his first PGA Tour win on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to move up 24 places in the weekly rankings from 27th to 3rd. The native of Plantation, Florida has been hot lately, with six top 20 finishes in his last seven starts, including a T5 at the Shell Houston Open and a tie for ninth at the Player’s Championship.

At the top of the rankings, there is no change in the top two places, as #1 Matt Kuchar and #2 Rory McIlroy hold their spots for a second consecutive week.  Kuchar’s lead over the Northern Irishman is just 188 points, heading into this weekend’s U.S. Open at Oakmont.

Former number one Jason Day of Australia drops a spot to #4, while Sweden’s Rikard Karlberg holds at fifth for a second consecutive week, to round out the Top Five.

Despite not posting a PGA Tour win for over two years, American Matt Kuchar jumps to number one this week in the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, June 7, 2016 edition.

Proving that consistency is sometimes more impressive than winning titles, the 37-year old PGA Tour veteran posted his fourth Top six finish in the last four weeks on Sunday, a tie for fourth place at the Memorial Tournament. The 2012 Players Champion, also had a 6th place finish at the Dean & Deluca Invitational and cashed third place cheques at Byron Nelson and Players in his recent run of form.

Kuchar moves up a spot from #2 last week and has a less than 200 point lead over second ranked Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland. McIlroy shared 4th with Kuchar at Muirfield Village to move for 3rd to 2nd in our weekly survey. The former number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking last held the number one spot on November 30, 2015.

After a five week run at number one, Australia’s Jason Day slips to third, after failing to post a Top 25 finish at the Memorial, despite being in contention heading into Sunday’s final round. A 74 dropped him into a tie for 27th at Jack’s place and a fall out of top spot in the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, June 7, 2016 edition.
