Nike Golf World Rankings Update – April 8, 2014

We are 2 (!) days away from the Masters and we are over a month removed from the last world rankings update.

Overall, there isn’t any good news aside from Russell Henley. He’s definitely been a bright spot for the past two seasons. Most athletes have dropped, while Russ made a big jump after winning the Honda Classic and a T7 last week.

Richard T Lee also had a big jump after winning the Solaire Open on the Asian Tour, though, he’s still 280th in the world. One step closer to the big leagues!

Here’s a look at all of the Team Nike athletes and their current world rankings:
With the WGC Accenture Match Play wrapping up this past week, there was quite the shake-up with the Official World Golf Rankings.

Team Nike World Golf Rankings Update as of March 12, 2013

Team Nike Match Play

It’s been a month since our last update. Since that time, we’ve had 7 PGA/European Tour events, including 2 big World Golf Championship events.

Here are some of the highlights;

  • Biggest Riser; Scott Brown after winning his first PGA Tour event, moved up 169 spots to 180th in the world.
  • Biggest Fallers; David Duval. He’s missed all 3 cuts in that span and has dropped 75 spots, mostly because he’s so low. Similarly, guys who aren’t playing, are dropping a lot. AK is still not playing and dropped 50 spots.
  • Top 50 Watch; 8 Team Nike members in the Top 50 in the world. Russ Henley moves into the Top 50 after two good WGC finishes (2nd round Match Play, T28 at Doral) and a T13 at the Honda Classic.

Here are the full, updated rankings for the Nike Golf roster.
