Byung-Hoon An, who reached the top 10 on the PGA Tour in two months, rose to 41st in the world rankings.

In the men’s golf weekly world rankings announced on the 11th, Byung-Hoon An jumped two places from 43rd last week.

An Byeong-Hoon, who started this year ranked 60th in the world, raised his world ranking to 39th by finishing 4th at The Sentry last January and runner-up at the Sony Open, but he remained in the top 40 for the next two months as he did not have a top 10 finish.

Kim Joo-hyung fell from 16th to 18th, and Lim Seong-jae fell from 35th to 36th.Kim Si-woo maintained 53rd place.

The player who most noticeably rose in the rankings this week is Bryce Garnett (USA), who won the PGA Tour Puerto Rico Open on the 11th.

Garnet jumped from 535th to 196th.

Scotty Scheffler (USA), who won the Arnold Palmer Invitational, maintained first place.

The gap with 2nd place Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) widened further.

Jon Lam (Spain) and Viktor Hovland (Norway) maintained 3rd and 4th places, and Wyndham Clark (USA), runner-up at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, jumped from 7th to 5th.
