Golf Barometer: This Rahm-Com Gets Rave Reviews
Golf Barometer: This Rahm-Com Gets Rave Reviews

This article is part of our Golf Barometer series.

When a golfer is ranked No. 1 in the world, it's hard to say he's rising, but somehow Dustin Johnson pulled it off this past week. By winning the Sentry Tournament of Champions on Sunday, Johnson increased his margin over world No. 2 Jordan Spieth to more than 2.1 OWGR points (11.19 to 9.03). But in the court of public opinion, that margin seems even larger after Johnson crushed the elite 34-man field to win by eight strokes. Johnson takes this week off, while Spieth stays in Hawaii for the Sony Open, trying to maintain his No. 2 standing. Meanwhile, the European Tour plays for the first time in 2018, with the BMW SA Open in South Africa. Natives Branden Grace, Charl Schwartzel and Dylan Frittelli head a field that lacks big names.
