Official World Golf Ranking - Week 08/17

Rickie Fowler has won the Honda Classic his first since the Deutsche Bank Championship in September 2015. Fowler led after 54 holes for the fifth time and for the first time turned it into a victory. He finished with a 71 for a 12-under 268 to win by four shots, the margin he started the day with. His lead narrowed down to one shot on the back nine but Fowler made birdie on the 12th, 13th and 16th to get it back, which meant his final two bogeys didn't matter.
Morgan Hoffman and Gary Woodland came in second at 12-under, Jhonattan Vegas, Billy Horschel, Chad Collins, Wesley Bryan , Martin Kaymer and Tyrell Hatton all finished fourth at 7-under.
Fowler moves up 5 spots in the ranking this week, Hoffman moves up from 394 to 184, Woodland moves up 11 spots to 30, Vegas up 9 spots to 59, Horschell up 5 spots to 70, Bryan up from 96 to 77, Kaymer up 6 spots to 45 and Hatton up one to 17.

Darren Fichardt has won his fifth European title at the Joburg Open. A birdie on the final hole gave him a 4-under 68, 200 total, to finish one ahead of Stuart Manley and Paul Waring. The tournament was greatly affected by thunder, lightning and flooding and was reduced to 54 holes. Fichardt started his third round tied with Waring for the lead at 11-under and birdied the 1st, 6th and 8th to get to 14-under. A further birdie on the 12th put him in joint first with Jacques Kruyswijk who made double-bogey on the 14th while Fichardt made par to take a 2-shot lead, cut down to one when Waring and Manley picked up shots on the 16th and 18th.
Jacques Kruyswijk, James Morrison and Brandon Stone finished T4 at 13-under.
This is Fichardt's first European victory since the 2013 Africa Open four years and nine days ago. He has played 98 European Tour events in between. His previous best finish second in the 2013 Tshwane Open and T2 in the 2016 BMW International Open.
This victory continues South Africa's domination of the event following Richard Sterne (2008, 13), Charl Schwartzel (2010-11), Branden Grace (2012), George Coetzee (2014) and Haydn Porteous (2016).
It is South Africa's second victory of the season following Brandon Stone at the Alfred Dunhill Championship. South Africa is the third country to win multiple events this season after England and Australia.
Fichardt moves up from 313 to 192, Manley up from 958 to 525, Waring up from 739 to 426, Kruyswijk up from 273 to 230, Morrison moves up 11 spots to 152 and Stone stays at 69.
