Australia’s Jason Day holds at #1 in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, May 31, 2016 edition. It’s Day’s fifth consecutive week at number one, but his hold on the top spot could be in serious jeopardy this week.

The 2016 Players Champion holds a lead of just over 300 points over American Matt Kuchar, who moves up a place to #2, after his third consecutive Top 6 finish on the PGA Tour, a T6 at the Dean and Deluca Invitational.

Kuchar swaps places with the number three player in the Official World Golf Ranking, Rory McIlroy of Nothern Ireland. McIlroy, winner of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in his last start, was idle last week.

Dean and Deluca champion Jordan Spieth moves back into the Top 5, jumping nine places to number four. The Colonial win was the former world number one’s second win of the 2015-2016 PGA Tour Season and his first victory since the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in January.

Also re-entering the Top Five is England’s Danny Willett, after his 3rd place finish at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. It was the 2016 Masters Champion first Top 5 finish since his first major championship victory in early April. The 28-year old is the only player to appear in the Top 20 of our rankings every week since we initiated the weekly survey last November.

Australia’s Jason Day is still number one in Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, May 24, 2016 edition. But a familiar rival is closing in on the leader.

Day, still riding the wave of his win in the recent Players Championship, holds the top spot for the fourth consecutive week, but his once seeming insurmountable lead has been reduced to 730 points.

The number two position this week is held by newly crowned Dubai Duty Free Irish Open champion Rory McIlroy. The hometown boy realized a life-long dream by winning his national open and jumps four spots in this week’s survey.

The four-time major champion holds at number three in the Official World Golf Ranking, but the gap between him and world #2 Jordan Spieth is getting smaller.

If the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, May 17, 2016 edition, are any indication, there isn’t much doubt who the best golfer in the world is at this point.

Starting the 2015-2016 season, all the talk centered around the game’s “Big Three” of Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day. Almost eight months into the season, and Day’s strong play has changed the conversation, establishing himself as a clear number one.

The Australian’s latest victory came on Sunday in the sport’s unofficial fifth major, The Players Championship. Despite challenging conditions the defending PGA Champion managed a wire-to-wire four stroke victory, that hardly seemed in doubt since Thursday’s opening round 63.

The win gives Day a commanding lead in both the Official World Golf Ranking and the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, and indications are he could stay on top of both surveys for a while.

The Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, May 10, 2016 edition look very similar to the rankings every week since the Masters, at least at the top. But that’s about to change.

For a fifth week in a row, the top three players remain unchanged in our weekly survey of the hottest players in golf.

Australia’s Jason Day, the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking, holds down the top spot for a second consecutive week. The 28-year, defending PGA Champion, has four Top 10 finishes, including a pair of wins (Arnold Palmer Invitational and Dell Match Play) in his last five starts.

He holds a slim 160 point lead over Masters’ champion Danny Willett of England, who holds at #2 for a second week, after a three week run in the top spot. The ninth ranked player in the world hasn’t played since his first major championship victory, but will tee it up, along with most of the best golfers in the World, at this week’s Players Championship.

American Jordan Spieth ranks third in our listing for a fifth consecutive week. The 2015 Masters and U.S. Open champion has also been on hiatus since Augusta and will be looking to erase the sting of his Masters’ collapse this week at Sawgrass.

The number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking is back on top of the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, May 3, 2016 edition.

Australian Jason Day used a 5th place finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to trade positions with the leader for the past three weeks, Masters’ champion Danny Willett of England.

Positions three and four remain unchanged as Americans Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson hold their spots for a fourth consecutive week.

Lee Westwood is the only new entry in the Top 5 as he jumps a spot to #5, overtaking South Afica’s Louis Ooosthuizen.

For a second consecutive week, there is no change in top five places of Razzball.com’ Fantasy Golf Rankings, April 26, 2016 edition.

Masters’ champion Danny Willett of England remains on top of the rankings for a third consecutive week. He has a 200 point lead on Australia’s Jason Day, the number one ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking.

A pair of Americans continue their hold on positions three and four. Masters’ runner-up Jordan Spieth remains in the third spot, while his President’s Cup teammate Dustin Johnson is ranked #4.

South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen, who withdrew his name from consideration for his country team for the Rio Olympic Games last week, rounds out the Top 5.

Our Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, April 19, 2016 edition, reflect one reality of life on the professional golf circuit.

That being that the week after a major championship is time for reflection and rest in most cases, and very little of significance happens, as players collect themselves for the upcoming Players Championship and the summer majors.

That reality is reflected in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, April 19, 2016 edition as the top nine positions remain unchanged from last week’s listing.

Masters’ champion Danny Willett of England remains on top, but his lead over Australia’s Jason Day shrinks a little bit.  The number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking closes to within 180 points of the leader, after a Top 25 finish at the RBC Heritage Classic.

Augusta runner-up Jordan Spieth remains in third place, another 400 points behind Day, as the World #2 continues to lick his wounds after his Masters’ collapse.

American Dustin Johnson and South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen hold down the fourth and fifth positions, respectively, to round out the static Top 5.

It wasn’t just luck and good fortune that allowed Danny Willett to get to the top of the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, April 12, 2016 edition.  But it helped.

First it was the early arrival of his first child on March 30th, that allowed him to compete in the Masters Tournament in the first place.  Then it was a meltdown for the ages by defending champion Jordan Spieth that allowed the Englishman to win his first major championship and moved to the top of our fantasy player rankings.

Along the way was some really spectacular golf, including a 67 on Sunday that ultimately gave him a three shot victory over Spieth and fellow Englishman, Lee Westwood.

Winning the Green Jacket also moved Willett into the Top 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking, for the first time, at #9.  No flash in the pan, the former number one amateur in the world is the only player to rank in the top 20 of our rankings every week since the new methodology was introduced in November.

One look at the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, April 5, 2016 edition, and it’s not hard to tell the year’s first major is at hand. All of the top players seem to be in form as the best golfers in the world make their annual trip down Magnolia Lane.

Leading the charge is the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking, Jason Day of Australia, who leads our ranking for the second consecutive week. The 28-year old has been battling a wonky back recently, but that hasn’t prevented him from posting back-to-back PGA Tour wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and WGC-Dell Match Play.

Day , who openly listed the Masters as his focus this year, prior to the start of the season, leads South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen by just over 400 points. It’s the second consecutive week as rankings runner-up for the 2010 Open champion.

Despite being idle for a couple of weeks, 2013 Masters champion Adam Scott holds at #3 for a second week. The former rankings’ leader heads into Augusta with two tour wins already this year and a ton of confidence.

It was a big week for Australia’s Jason Day, who accomplished much more than claiming the top spot in Razzball.com’s Fantasy Golf Rankings, March 29, 2016 edition.

The reigning PGA Champion set himself up as an early favorite heading into next week’s Masters with a second consecutive PGA Tour victory. The 28-year old followed up his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with an equally impressive victory at the WGC Dell Match Play Championship on Sunday.

The Back-to-Back wins also moved Day back to the top of the Official World Golf Ranking for a second time. The Aussie last held the top spot after his win at the BMW Championship last September.

In the Razzball rankings, Day edged Match Play runner-up Louis Oosthuizen and former #1 Adam Scott for the number one position. The nine-time PGA tour champion jumped from 7 to 1.

Oosthuizen moved up a spot to #2, while Scott fell two places to #3 after holding the top placing for four weeks.

A couple of other players with big-time Match Play results complete the Top Five. Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy used his fourth place finish to move from eighth to #4 in our weekly survey. Meanwhile the player who beat him in the consolation match, Rafa Cabrera Bello of Spain, improved by 14 spots to land at number five.
