Matt Fitzpatrick (England), who won his second personal victory in the ‘Special Tournament’ of the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, entered the top 10 in the world rankings.
Fitzpatrick marked 8th place, up 8 places from 16th place last week, with a ranking point of 5.6348 in the men’s golf world rankings announced on the 17th (Korean time).
Fitzpatrick tied with Jordan Spieth (USA) with a final total of 17 under par 267 strokes at the PGA Tour RBC Heritage (total prize money of 20 million dollars), which ended that day, and won the championship after a third extension.

As a result, he made a big jump in the world rankings. He, who was ranked 16th until last week, climbed eight places to rank eighth. 8 is Fitzpatrick’s personal best ranking.바카라사이트
