McIlroy rises to No. 3 in world rankings

Rory McIlroy will enter this week’s U.S. Open as the No. 3-ranked player in the world, officially moving up one spot on Monday following his seven-shot victory at the RBC Canadian Open.

The Northern Irishman moved past England’s Justin Rose with his second victory and 10th top 10 finish in 12 events this year. McIlroy won The Players Championship in March and posted a pair of T8s before missing the cut at the Memorial Tournament.

He also rose to No. 2 in the FedEx Cup standings behind Matt Kuchar.

“Obviously a huge confidence builder not just for next week, but for the rest of the season,” McIlroy said after posting a 61 on Sunday. “To be tied for the lead and to play the way I did, play with that freedom and play with no inhibitions, take driver and stay aggressive …

“Hopefully sets up well for the rest of year, too.”

Two-time reigning U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka will arrive at Pebble Beach this week atop the world rankings, followed by good friend Dustin Johnson. Johnson closed the gap a bit with a T20 in Canada, while Koepka posted a T50 in his first start since winning the PGA Championship last month.

Tiger Woods remained No. 5, followed by Italy’s Francesco Molinari, who moved up one spot past Justin Thomas. Patrick Cantlay, Bryson DeChambeau and Xander Schauffele round out the Top 10.

    Deep-seated corruption is another threat to the country’s renewal. Endemic corruption has not only undermined access to basic rights such as health care and education, but was a major reason for the country’s catastrophic collapse last year, as military officials pilfered funds and equipment intended to bolster security up north. Many in the capital, Bamako, are calling the struggle to end corruption “the next war.”
