There is a high possibility that the main character of the men’s golf world ranking will change again in a week.
World No. 3 John Rahm (Spain) becomes world No. 1 if he takes the lead by 3 strokes in the 3rd round of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars) and wins.
Ram took the opportunity to return to world number one in January. If Rory McIlroy, who won the Farmers Insurance Open and participated in the DP World Tour Dubai Desert Classic held in the United Arab Emirates during the same period, did not win, he could have taken the throne. However, Rahm was unable to return to first place as he tied for 7th on the final day of the Farmers Insurance Open with a 74.
Then last week, the men’s golf world ranking fluctuated. 2nd place Scotty Scheffler (USA) won the Waste Management Phoenix Open, pushing out McIlroy and rising to 1st place. Ram maintained third place.
Ram created a good opportunity to regain the world number 1 in about 3 weeks.
On the 19th (Korean time), until the 3rd round of the Genesis Invitational held at Riviera Country Club (par 71) in Pacific Palisades, California, USA, he hit 15 under par 198 strokes, leading by 3 strokes to 2nd place Max Homa (USA). If the game ends like this, Ram can surpass Schaeffler and McIlroy and rise to No. 1 in the world rankings. 온라인바카라
Ram has been ranked No. 1 in the world rankings for 43 weeks in his career. He reached world number 1 for the first time in July 2020, and then sat on the throne as world number 1 on four occasions. From July 2021, he kept the throne for 36 weeks.
Starting this year, the Genesis Invitational, which has been held as 17 special events designated by the PGA Tour, receives 67 world ranking points for the winner. Ram’s current rating is 8.3629, which is 0.818 behind the first place Schaeffler (9.1809). If Ram wins and adds 67 world ranking points, the rating can be raised to 9.7 points.
The world ranking is determined by the average score obtained by adding up the points earned by each player in competitions in the last two years (104 weeks) and dividing the points by the number of competitions participated. 100% weight is given to the points a player has earned during the most recent 13 weeks, and points from the remaining 91 weeks are sequentially devalued by 1.1%. Points over 104 weeks are excluded from the ranking calculation.
