Rory McIlroy is No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking again.
After winning his third major title before the age of 26 at the Open Championship, McIlroy took his first World Golf Championships event in taking the Bridgestone Invitational by two shots over Sergio Garcia.
As a result of his win and now former No. 1 Adam Scott’s finish, Rory McIlroy is now the No. 1 player in the world for the fifth time. McIlroy and Luke Donald traded the No. 1 position seven times in 2012, with McIlroy eventually hanging onto the top spot for 32 weeks before Tiger Woods took it at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March 2013.
Scott held the No. 1 ranking for 11 weeks.
