Johnson back at number one
American Dustin Johnson is ranked number one in the world again despite not playing in last week’s Honda Classic.
The 34-year-old has held top spit for 81 weeks in his career but was behind England’s Justin Rose until the new rankings were published on Monday.
The Florida resident is now a mere 0.0008 average points ahead of Rose, who slips to second, with Brooks Koepka moving up to third after his share of second place at Palm Beach Gardens.
Justin Thomas drops down to fourth, as he could only manage a tied-30th effort on Sunday, while Bryson DeChambeau remains in fifth spot after taking the week off.
Rory McIlroy was also inactive and stays sixth ahead of Rickie Fowler, who moves up to seventh following his share of second at the Honda.
Xander Schauffele, Jon Rahm and Francesco Molina complete the top 10, with Italy's Open champion playing just two tournaments in 2019 so far, as he paces himself for a busy summer, with one major per month from April.
