The top-eight players in the world rankings remained the same, with the Open champion and PGA Championship winner Rory McIlroy staying put at No. 1. Adam Scott, Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar and Masters champion Bubba Watson also remained the same and are two through eight.

Jason Day and Phil Mickelson traded places with Day jumping one spot to No. 9, dropping Mickelson back to No. 10. Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth held steady at 11 and 12, as did Rickie Fowler at No. 13.

The remainder of the top 20 in the world also stayed the same with U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer, Zach Johnson, Graeme McDowell, Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama, Jimmy Walker and Charl Schwartzel remaining 14 through 20.
