PARIS: Journeyman William McGirt rocketed 58 spots up the golf world rankings after grinding out his first PGA Tour victory, as the top remained unchanged with Jason Day leading the pack.

The 36-year-old McGirt surged up to 44th with his victory on Monday in a sudden death playoff at the Memorial Tournament, where world number three Rory McIlroy finished fourth.

The Australian Day was a disappointing 27th at Dublin, Ohio, where world number two Jordan Spieth was down in 57th.
