Justin Thomas ascends to No

THE PLAYERS Championship- Final Round

After eight tour victories in three years - including last year's PGA Championship - and six of them in the last 14 months, Justin Thomas finally displaced Dustin Johnson last night as the world's number one player.

Last year's 2017 PGA Tour Player of the Year also now leads the FedEx Cup rankings, a title which he convincingly won last year.

Johnson is also second in total weeks at No. 1 among the seven Americans who have held the top spot.

And then there are the thoroughbreds slightly further back like McIlroy and Jason Day, both former World No 1s, who are eminently capable of putting a hot streak together in a run of big tournaments and wrestling back top spot.

Webb Simpson won the Players Championship by four strokes. Thomas finished at 11-under 277 while Johnson finished at 278 after a final-round 72.

Thomas is the reigning PGA Championship victor, and Webb Simpson's victory Sunday gives the US control of the four majors and The Players for the first time in 17 years.

State prosecutors said the children were subjected to waterboarding, shot with crossbows and had scalding water poured on them. There was also spoiled food on the floor and feces-both animal and human-throughout the house, making some areas impassable.

Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose all had the opportunity to take over the No. 1 ranking based on various possible finishes.

With the result, the US PGA Championship victor was confirmed as the new world number one. He won $9,921,560 plus a $10 million bonus as the FedEx Cup champion previous year.
