Jon Rahm is already the tenth player in history with the most weeks as No. 1

The Spanish Jon Rahm maintained, after the RBC Heritage, his status as number 1 in the world golf ranking with which he adds 48 weeks and becomes the tenth player who has spent the most time has been at the forefront of the official ranking (OWGR).

His next objectives to overcome will be the 50 weeks for Welshman Ian Woosnam, 51 for Australian Jason Day, 56 for British Luke Donald and 61 for Spanish Severiano Ballesteros.

Matt Fitzpatrick’s victory at Heritage, on the third playoff hole over American Jordan Spieth, and, above all, the poor end of the tournament for American Scottie Scheffler, who aspired to take Rahm’s place, have been the keys so that the Barrika golfer stays at the top.

Fitzpatrick enters the top10 and reaches his best ranking ever with the eighth position he occupies this week, while Spieth rises to ninth place. American Xander Schauffle, now fifth, and Australian Cameron Smith, sixth, swap places.

After Rahm, the best Ibero-American player on the world list is the Chilean Joaquín Niemann in 25th placefollowed by the Mexican Abraham Ancer (36), the Chilean Guillermo Mito Pereira (55), the Spanish Adri Arnaus (83) and Adrián Otaegui (92) and the Argentine Emiliano Grillo (93).
