Important and significant changes were expected in the Golden Graduate Rankings. It was an important week. First World Championship of the season and two Silver events which were the Puerto Rico Open and the Africa Open. They didn’t let us down. To start, an upset in the general rankings. Bernd Wiesberger lost the first position, although by a very small margin, it’s true, to the benefit of Brooks Koepka, who continues to grow and grow as a golfer. The three and a half points that were added thanks to his seventeenth position were sufficient enough to take command of the Golden Graduate.
Although a change in leadership is the most important thing that can happen throughout the week, we would say that the most significant movement was that of Henrik Stenson. The Swedish golfer went up no less than 35 points with his fourth position at Doral and he went up to the fourth spot in the rankings. It’s worth keeping a close eye on this Nordic golfer because he is, without a doubt, one of the top favorites for the final victory of the season.
Ross Fisher and Marc Warren also went up in the rankings within the top ten after a good week at the Cadillac, although the second most important change this week came from Africa, made by Morten Orum Madsen and Spanish golfer Jorge Campillo. The Danish golfer and the Extramadura native, third in the East London of South Africa, went up various positions. Madsen was placed in the top ten and Campillo is now the highest-ranking Spanish golfer in twentieth place, above Álvaro Quirós and Adrián Otaegui. Rafa Cabrera Bello, another Spanish golfer, is also involved in the rankings, who went up two points with his tenth place in the Puerto Rico Open.
