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.

For the 4th straight week, there’s no change at the top of Razzball’s Fantasy Golf Rankings, March 22, 2016 edition.

Australia’s Adam Scott picked up a few more points after a T12 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on the weekend.  The former world #1 was looking for his third win in a row after victories at the Honda Classic and WGC-Cadillac Championships.

Scott has a big lead over American Bubba Watson who holds at #2 for a third week. The 37-year old lefthander has been idle since a runner-up finish at Doral and will be back in action this week at the WGC Dell Match Play event.

South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel remain in third and fourth place respectively, while England’s Danny Willett completes the Top five.  The 11th ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking moves up one spot this week, swapping places with Rickie Fowler.

As predicted, Australia’s Adam Scott maintains his big lead in the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, March 16, 2016 edition.

Despite being idle last week, Scott leads his rivals by a considerable margin after consecutive wins at the Honda Classic and Cadillac Championships. The sixth ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking has a 1,000 point lead over American Bubba Watson, who also maintains his position for the second consecutive week.

The big story of the week, though, is a pair of South African major champions who find themselves in the Top 5 of the rankings, just four weeks before the first major of 2016.

2011 Masters’ champion Charl Schwartzel moves from 13 to 4 in the weekly survey, after his playoff victory at the Valspar Championship. His countryman, Louis Oosthuizen is one place better, jumping two spots to number three, after a T7 at the Copperhead course. Oosthuizen, the 2010 Open Champion, also has a solid record at Augusta, including a second place finish in 2012.

Reigning Players Champion, Rickie Fowler, completes the Top five, falling two spots to number five.

Australia’s Adam Scott overcame near disaster, at the World Golf Championships Cadillac Championship on Sunday, to win his second consecutive PGA Tour event and maintain his hold on top of the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, March 8, 2016 edition.

Scott was near the lead on the front nine when double bogies on three and five dropped him six shots behind leader Rory McIlroy with 13 holes to play. The 2013 Masters champion responded by going six-under par on that final stretch to edge American Bubba Watson for the title.

It was the second consecutive week Scott had overcame major adversity to post a victory. At last week’s Honda Classic, Scott was in the lead on Saturday only to make a quadruple bogey seven on the par 3 15th hole. He rallied to beat Sergio Garcia by a single stroke for his first tournament win since May, 2014.

Scott holds a lead of more than a thousand points over the second ranked Watson, and looks poised to stay on top for the next few weeks. In addition to success in our fantasy rankings, the Cadillac triumph also moved Scott back to #6 in the Official World Golf Ranking, his highest position in nearly a year.

Australia’s Adam Scott ended a long victory drought on Sunday with victory at the Honda Classic and the win moved him into top spot in Razzball.com’s Fantasy Golf Rankings, March 1, 2016 edition.

Scott, who moved back in into the Top 10 (9th) in the Official World Golf Ranking this week, has been red-hot lately with three runner-up finishes and six total top tens in his last eight worldwide starts.

The 2013 Masters champion is 160 points up on American Rickie Fowler, who holds at #2 in the rankings for a fourth straight week, maintaining his position with a T6 at PGA National.

Another former major champion bursts into the Top 5 at number three. South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen, the 2010 Open champion, jumps 43 places this week after his win at the ISPS Handa Perth International on the European Tour. Oosthuizen edged France’s Alexander Levy, who makes the weeks biggest jump from #185 to 17, by a single stroke. It was his first win since January, 2014.

Last week’s rankings leader, Bubba Watson, drops three places to number four, while Australian Marcus Fraser, a winner a week ago at the Maybank Classic, hits the Top five for the first time after a T15 at the Perth event.

There’s a new number one player in our weekly Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, February 23, 2016 edition.

Two time Masters Champion Bubba Watson claimed the top spot by winning the Northern Trust Open on Sunday, his second win at Hogan’s Alley in the last three years.

The victory also moved Bubba back to fourth in the Official World Golf Ranking, as he swapped spots with his buddy, Fowler.

South Africans hold down the next two positions. Branden Grace, who led the ranking the past three weeks, slips to number three, while countryman Charl Schwartzel slips one spot to land at #4.
