Rahm falls to sixth place despite his comeback in the BMW Championship

Spaniard Jon Rahm, despite finishing eighth in the BMW Championship, fell back to sixth in the world golf rankings after being overtaken by America


Spaniard Jon Rahm, despite finishing eighth in the BMW Championship, fell back to sixth in the world golf rankings after being overtaken by American Xander Schauffele, whom he had overtaken the previous week.

The table continues to be led by the American Scottie Scheffler with 10.26 points ahead of the Australian Cameron Smith (9.00), while the American Patrick Cantlay, winner this Sunday, has placed third with 8.61 to the detriment of Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy (8.14), which falls to fourth place.

Rahm added his eighth ‘top 10’ of the season on the American circuit in Wilmington by finishing eighth, but it did not allow him to maintain fifth place when Schauffele finished third.

The other three Spaniards in the top 100 in the standings are also losing ground. Adri Arnaus drops to position 67, Pablo Larrazábal to 71 and Sergio García to 73.
