Here are the exclusive Golfweek PGA Tour power rankings for the week of June 11-17, 2018:
20. Marc Leishman
Has had up-and-down season, but his good has been really good: six top-10s, including two runner-up finishes.
19. Brooks Koepka
Final-round 73 dropped him 20 spots to T-30 at FedEx St. Jude Classic. Now it’s time to defend his U.S. Open trophy.
18. Paul Casey
Back injury that forced him out of Players didn’t appear to slow him at BMW PGA, where he was T-20.
17. Henrik Stenson
A couple of 71s prevented him from finishing better than T-26 at TPC Southwind.
16. Alex Noren
Has the tools needed for a U.S. Open and has three top-3s this year between both tours.
15. Brian Harman
Contended last year at Erin Hills and enters Shinnecock Hills with seven top-10s, though none in his last five starts.
14. Jordan Spieth
Can he end his putting woes and pull off more major magic at Shinnecock Hills?
13. Webb Simpson
Strong all-around game has him among the expected U.S. Open contenders outside the top 10 in the world rankings.
12. Bryson DeChambeau
Memorial victory was his fourth top-4 finishes in seven starts, and his putter is hot.
11. Rickie Fowler
Tied for eighth at Memorial and will play his first tournament as an engaged man, at Shinnecock Hills.
10. Rory McIlroy
Closed strong at Memorial, tying for eighth, and is among the U.S. Open favorites.
9. Tiger Woods
If he shows up at Shinnecock putting well and he strikes it like he did at Memorial, he could add another U.S. Open title.
8. Bubba Watson
Has finished outside the top 40 in two consecutive starts, which doesn’t bode well for his U.S. Open prospects.
7. Patrick Reed
Has cooled off since run of five top-10s in a row, which included his first major victory at Masters.
6. Phil Mickelson
Continued his success in Memphis with T-12 finish capped by final-round 65.

World No. 4 took two weeks off to prepare for Shinnecock Hills. Has three top-5s, including a win, in last four starts.

2. Dustin Johnson
Holed out for eagle to cap six-shot victory in Memphis and regain No. 1 spot in Official World Golf Ranking.
