In a week with a built-in break in the FedEx Cup playoffs, it’s not surprising that there was very little movement in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, September 20, 2016 edition.

American Patrick Reed, one of five players who controls his own FedEx Cup destiny this week in Atlanta, holds at #1 for a fourth consecutive week. The 26-year old remains one of the hottest players on the planet, finish 1st, 5th and 13th in the first three playoff events.

BMW Champion Dustin Johnson, Reed’s American Ryder Cup teammate, remains in the number two position. DJ who has three victories this season that include a major (U.S. Open), a World Golf Championship (Bridgestone) and a Playoff event (BMW) is a major contender for the first annual Razzball PGA Tour Player of the year, which will be announced next week.

England’s Paul Casey, a runner-up in the last two playoff events in Boston and Chicago, is ranked third for a second consecutive week. The 39-year old Cheltenham native will look to snap a seven-year PGA Tour winless streak this week at East Lake.

The only change in this week’s top five sees, Australia’s Adam Scott move up to number four, swapping places with PGA champion Jimmy Walker, who slips to five this week.

It’s getting close at the top of the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, September 13, 2016 edition.

American Patrick Reed, who won the first event of the PGA Tour Playoffs at Bethpage Black, remains at number one for a third consecutive week, but several players could catch him with a win at next week’s Tour Championship.

Reed, who consolidated his hold on the top spot with a tie for 13th at the BMW Championship, holds a slim 226 point advantage over BMW champion, Dustin Johnson.

DJ picked up his third win of the season in Chicago and moved a little closer to World #1 Jason Day in the Official World Golf Ranking. The reigning U.S. Open champion improves 10 places this week, after ranking 12th in last week’s rankings.

Also getting a little closer is Paul Casey. The Englishman sits third in our weekly survey, just 330 points behind Reed, after finishing as runner-up for the second consecutive week. The 16th ranked player in the world is still looking for his first win since the 2009 Shell Houston Open. It’s Casey’s first time in the top five, beating his previous best of eighth he reached on a couple of occasions, including last week.

As expected, the opening event of the 2015-2016 FedEx Cup Playoffs, The Barclays, had a big effect on the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, August 30, 2016 edition.

Barclays’ champion, Patrick Reed, of the U.S.A, moves to number one, up from ninth position a week ago, after posting his first PGA Tour win in almost two seasons. His last victory came at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, in January, 2015.

The Barclays’ win guarantees the 26-year old a Top 5 spot entering the Tour Championship, allowing him to control his own destiny. A victory at East Lake will give him the FedEx Cup championship and the $10 million bonus.

Despite the long victory drought, this is the second time Reed has topped our weekly survey. He was number one for three competitive weeks, and seven weeks overall, aided by the Christmas break, between December 7, 2015 and January 18, 2016.

Reed has a 480 point lead over the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking, Australia’s Jason Day. Day moves up one spot to number two this week after a tie for fourth place at Bethpage Black.

It’s the 2015 PGA champion’s 24th consecutive week in the Top 10 and fifth straight survey in which he was ranked in the Top three. The last time the 28-year old missed the Top 10 was way back on March 15, 2016.

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 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.
