The Spanish Jon has risen to place in the world golf ranking, which is still led by the American scottie scheffler and in which his compatriot Will Zalatoris is ninth after winning this Sunday the FedEx St. Jude.

The player from Barrika, who came back on the last day to fifth place in the Memphis tournament, obtained his best position on the American circuit since he won the Mexican Open in January.

This allows him to position himself with an average of 7.20 and overtake the North American Xander Schauffele (7.06).

Scheffler holds number one solidly (10.04) ahead of the Aussie cameron smith (8.92), the Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy (8.09) and the American patrick cantlay (7.52).

Zalatoris beat the Austrian in the playoff sepp straka and stars in the most outstanding progression, going from fourteenth to ninth place, already very close to his compatriots justin thomas and Colin Morikawa.

adri arnaus continues to be the second best Spaniard, despite falling to 66th place, and Pablo Larrazabal is now third, in 69th place, two ahead of Sergio Garcia.
