Justin Thomas replaces Dustin Johnson at the top of the World Golf Rankings after finishing in 11th place at the Players Championship.
Justin Thomas has become the new world number one, ending Dustin Johnson's 64-week streak at the top of the World Golf Rankings.
Johnson needed to finish in the top 10 at the Players Championship, but the American could only claim a share of 17th place as his stay at the top of the sport came to an end.
Thomas, meanwhile, finished the event in a tie for 11th and has now established a 0.25 lead at a time when his compatriot has a significant tally of ranking points to defend in the coming weeks.
England's Tommy Fleetwood is now ranked at 10th spot courtesy of finishing in seventh position, while Webb Simpson - who won the tournament at Sawgrass - has moved into the world's top 20.
Tiger Woods finished in a share of 11th at the 'fifth Major' and it has resulted in progress into 80th position in the standings.
