Jordan Spieth might be the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking and coming off a dominating victory at Kapalua, but he still trails fellow American Patrick Reed in the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, January 11, 2016 edition.

Reed, in the midst of a streak of seven straight world-wide Top 10 finishes, was runner-up to Spieth at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii on the weekend. The four-time PGA Tour winner holds a slim, 80 point lead over the World #1, the closest finish since we started compiling the ranking last fall.

Spieth moves up to number two. He jumped over former leader Rory McIlroy, who slips from four to two, and South African Branden Grace, who holds at #3 after a 4th place finish in the European Tour’s South Africa Open.

American Kevin Kisner jumps four place to complete the Top 5 on the strength of a solid ninth place showing at the T of C.

He didn’t win this fall, but there’s no doubt that Patrick Reed is one of the hottest players in golf, since the end of the 2015-2016 PGA Tour season.

Six straight top tens, including a couple of runner-up finishes and a third place showing, may not have resulted in the 25-year old posing with any trophies, but it does move him to the top of Razzball.com’s Fantasy Golf Rankings, as the 2015 calendar year comes to a close.

Reed, after play last weekend, leads the rankings with 2,592 points, overtaking last week’s #1, Rory McIlroy, after a second place finish at the Hero World Challenge. McIlroy remains in second place.

South Africa’s Charl Schwartzel returned to one of his favorite places in the golf world on the weekend, and the resulting, and somewhat predictable, victory has vaulted him back into the Top Ten of Razzball.com’s Fantasy Golf Rankings.

The 31-year old from Johannesburg won his fourth Alfred Dunhill Championship and his 10th European Tour title on Sunday with a 4-shot victory over France’s Gregory Bourdy. Schwartzel’s previous wins in the event came in 2004, 2012 and 2013. He’s finished in the top two in the tournament eight of the 12 years it’s been played at the Leopard Creek Country Club.

The win moved the 2011 Masters Champion into 8th place in the weekly Fantasy Golf Rankings, up from 26th place the previous week. It was also Schwartzel’s second consecutive top five finish after his T4 at the DP World Tour Championships in Dubai the previous week.

A win at the European Tour’s DP World Tour Championship has moved Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy into the top spot in Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, after weekend action.

McIlroy fired a final round 66 to take the title and jump 22 spots in this week’s ranking, from 23rd to 1st. The former #1 ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking, closed the gap on World number one Jordan Spieth and #2 Jason Day, making it a tight three-way race at the top of the World List and setting up an interesting stretch heading into 2016’s first major in Augusta in April.

Reed Moves to Number Two

On the Razzball index, the 26-year old has a lead of over 400 points over American Patrick Reed, who moves up one spot in the rankings to #2. Reed has five consecutive Top 10 finishes since the PGA Tour Championship, including a T10 in Dubai.

Scotland’s Russell Knox jumps to the top of Razzball’s revamped Fantasy Golf Rankings, after weekend play on the PGA and European Tours.

The rankings now include tournaments on both the North American PGA Tour and the European Tour to better reflect the global reach of the game. Secondary tour events held the same week as World Golf Championship events, like the recent Sanderson Farms Open, have also been added.

The 30-year old from Inverness recorded a second consecutive top two finish, losing in a playoff at the OHL Classic one week after picking up his first career victory at the WGC-HSBC Champions event in China. The high finishes moved Knox to a career high 29th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Knox jumped over last week’s leader, Henrik Stenson, who held his high place in the rankings with a Top 3 finish at the BMW Masters on the European Tour. The Swede trails the leader by 190 points and is scheduled to play in Dubai this week, where he is a two-time defending champion.

Winning a World Golf Championship event, like the HSBC Champions, has a lot of perks that go with it. There’s the prize money, the exemptions into big events and valuable FedEx Cup points.

But for Scotland’s Russell Knox, it also means a mammoth jump in the Razzball PGA Tour Fantasy Golf Hot Index. The 30-year old from Inverness jumps from 56th to 4th in the latest rankings, and will be looking for another jump when he tees in up in Mexico this week.

Sweden’s Henrik Stenson moves into the Top spot in the index this week after his T11 in China. He moves ahead of the idle Jason Day, who falls to second. Jordan Spieth, who had a seventh place finish at the HSBC to sit third and Dustin Johnson, who jumps from ninth to number five after a tie for fifth at the WGC, round out the top five.
