McIlroy assumes No. 1 in world ranking following PGA Championship win



Rory McIlroy is once again on top of the world.

Not only did he win his second major at the PGA Championship by a record eight shots, but also surpassed Luke Donald for the top spot in the Official World Golf Ranking.



McIlroy jumped from third to first in the ranking with his win on Kiawah Island, now carrying an average of 10.35 points and a lead of .76 points over erstwhile No. 1 Luke Donald.

This is the seventh time this season Donald and McIlroy have swapped the No. 1 spot in the ranking.

Tiger Woods drops from second to third, trailing Donald by .89 points. Woods, however, is 1.36 points ahead of No. 4 Lee Westwood, who missed the cut at the PGA Championship.

Rounding out the top 10 are Webb Simpson, Adam Scott, Justin Rose (up three), Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner and Steve Stricker.

David Lynn, who finished alone in second, jumped up 58 spots to 40th.
