Despite a disappointing Tour Championship, Dustin Johnson is the runaway winner of Razzball’s 2016 PGA Tour Player of the Year.

The 32-year old native of Columbia, South Carolina won three times this season. In addition to his first major at the U.S. Open, he won the WGC Bridgestone Invitational and the BMW Championship.

DJ finished the season with a total of 1,640 points, 328 more than Australia’s Jason Day, the #1 player in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Day failed to win a major in the 2015-2016 season, but was also a three-time tour winner. The 2015 PGA champion’s victories came at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the WGC-Dell Match Play and at the Players Championship.

It took a while for him to get back, but it should come as no surprise that Rory McIlroy is on top of the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, October 4, 2016 edition.

If you had polled golf experts prior to the start of the 2016-2016 PGA Tour season, many would have chosen the young Northern Irishman to me on top of the rankings at the end of the year. The fact that it took him a little longer than expected is the only shock.

McIlroy continued his late season surge at the Tour Championship, winning for the second time in the PGA Tour playoffs to capture the 2016 FedEx Cup championship, and the $10 million dollar bonus. While that may not take away the disappointment of a frustrating major season completely, I’m sure it helps.

The four-time major champion moves up five places to capture top spot, the second time he’s hit number one in our rankings. He previously ruled the rankings for two weeks in November, 2015.

He holds a surprisingly slim lead over a resurgent Paul Casey, who recorded his third consecutive top five playoff finish in Atlanta. The Englishman moves from 3rd to 2nd in his fourth consecutive week in the Top 10. Casey still hasn’t won on tour since the 2009 Houston Open, but a PGA Tour victory seems close.

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.
