LONDON: Jordan Spieth’s seventh PGA title win in Hawaii on Sunday (Monday in Manila) has put some distance between himself and rivals Jason Day and Rory McIlroy at the top of the world rankings.

The three young players are currently the toast of golf and all eyes are on their rivalries over the course of the year.

Spieth, at 21 the youngest of the three, took the number one spot back from Day late last year and he looks set to hold on to it through to April and the Masters, the first of the year’s four majors, where he will be the defending champion.

Day and McIlroy have yet to start their seasons.
