Dustin Johnson continues to lead and Thomas stalks Jon Rahm

The American continues one more week as number one in the ranking, while Justin Thomas is very close to Rahm after the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

The American Dustin Johnson started the year with an eleventh place in the Hawaiian Tournament of Champions that allows him to continue at the top of the world golf ranking with a comfortable advantage over the Spanish Jon Rahm, whose second place is threatened by another American, Justin Thomas .

Rahm finished seventh in Hawaii but Thomas did it in third place and his average number of points in the ranking (9.6651) almost matched that of the Spanish (9.6697). Johnson tops the list with 12.2108.

American Harris English, winner of the Hawaiian tournament, went from 29th to 17th place. He won the title by beating Chilean Joaquín Niemann on the first playoff hole, who went from 45th to 31st this week.

Among the top ten, the most significant changes affected two Americans, Xander Schauffele and Collin Morikawa, who rose two places to rank fourth and fifth, respectively, on the list.

The United States continues to dominate the world rankings: it has five players in the top six (Rahm is the only non-American) and seven in the top-10, which also includes two Englishmen, Rory McIlroy (7th) and Tyrrell Hatton (10th).

The Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii was the first tournament of the 2021 PGA Tour season and has brought together a select group of 42 golfers led by world number one Dustin Johnson, who shared eleventh place with Spain's Sergio Garcia.
