McIlroy drops Rahm from the two

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy has snatched second place in the world golf rankings from Spain’s Jon Rahm, which is still led by the American Scottie Scheffler and in which the Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick placed tenth after winning the US Open.

McIlroy’s fifth place finish allows him to climb a step on the podium with 7.77 points on average to the detriment of Rahm (7.76), twelfth at Brookline after a bad last day in which he curtailed with 74 shots his chances of trying to revalidate the victory in the third ‘major’ of the season. Scheffler, meanwhile, who fought until the last moment to win the second major this year -he won the Augusta Masters-, consolidated his leadership in the world list, which he leads with 10.95 points.

Fitzpatrick, winner after a vibrant fight with the American Will Zalatoris, premiered his chapter of triumphs in the greats and climbed to tenth place on a list in which the American Collin Morikawa, fifth, rose from seventh to fourth place (7.20), just ahead of Justin Thomas.

American Patrick Cantlay and Australian Cameron Smith, which curdled a poor performance, fell to sixth and seventh place, respectively, followed by the Norwegian Viktor Hovland and the American Sam Burns. Adri Arnaus and Sergio García could not make the cut. Both descend to positions 56 and 59and Pablo Larrazabal improved one place (70).
