Jason Day climbed seven spots from No. 18 to No. 11 in the latest Official World Golf Ranking following his victory at the World Cup of Golf.
It’s the highest world ranking for Day since he was ranked 10th after the 2013 Transitions Championship. Day had dropped to 45th at one point early this year.
His highest world ranking ever is seventh.
Thomas Bjorn, who was runner-up to Day at Royal Melbourne, moved up 10 spots to 34th.
From other tournaments:
• Luke Donald successfully defended his title at the Dunlop Phoenix. The former World No. 1 improved two spots to 15th in the world after the victory. Donald dropped out of the top 10 in the word earlier this year after holding the top spot in July 2012.
• Morten Orum Madsen’s victory at the South African Open, a co-sanctioned event by the European and Sunshine tours, moved him from No. 244 to No. 121.
