Jon Rahm remains first in the World Golf Ranking, and in key PGA Tour stat

Jon Rahm checks in at No. 18 in Prize money in the 2021-22 PGA Tour season with $ 1,699,630. He’s yet to find the winner’s Circle, but he’s 5-for-6 in cuts made and has two top-5 finishes. Hideki Matsuyama leads the Tour in cash through the season’s first 18 events with $ 3,897,233.

Rahm, who announced last week that he and wife Kelley are expecting their second boy, still has a firm grip on the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking as well as the Golfweek / Sagarin rankings.

Rahm is also No. 1 in one of the most important Tour stat: strokes gained off the tee.

With the Fall Series and the West Coast Swing now in the Rearview mirror and the Florida Swing having started, there have been enough events played this season to start to get a good statistical feel for the game. Most players have competed in at least four events, so their stats have meaning and are less likely to see this wild change based on one week’s performance.
