Top 10 Golf Players: The ranking of a sport is a key factor in determining your career. Let’s take a look at the greatest golfers ever.
The ability to play in-game is the determining factor. These players work hard every day to maintain or improve their rankings. It is quite possible to be among the top 10 players in any sport category in the world.
Here are WazooSport’s top 10 golf players for 2022, taking into account wins, consistency, and strokes-gained stats.
1. Dustin Hunter Johnson
Age: 36 years
He is an American professional golfer and a well-known player on the PGA tours. Dustin has won six World Golf Championships. He is the first ranked player in the world and the 10th in the top ten of ranked players in golf.
It was an easy decision when Johnson finished his year with his second major title and his first green jacket. He won Augusta National by five shots. Johnson’s incredible 2022 season ended with the Masters win. He won four times in eleven starts, including a FedEx Cup title. On seven occasions, he finished within the top three.
Brooks Koepka spoke highly of Johnson, saying that Johnson’s stretch of golf would be remembered as “one of the most memorable six months in our history.”
It will be fascinating to see if the world’s number one player can maintain his amazing form in the new year, and give himself the chance to defend his green jacket for April.
2. Bryson DeChambeau
Age: 27 years
DeChambeau’s Masters didn’t go as planned, but he showed that his physical transformation was worth it by sweeping the U.S. Open.
It will be interesting to see how DeChambeau launches his 2022 campaign. His confidence could grow with early success, which could set the stage for an incredible year. If he fails to make it, you shouldn’t be surprised that golf’s most talented player spends more time tweaking his game than competing.
B DeChambeau, an American professional golfer, is his name. He won eight PGA tour titles with the utmost title. He was the fifth player to win both the NCAA and U.S Amateur divisions in the past.
3. Justin Louis Thomas
Age: 28 years
Justin is a former American golfer and a winner at 5 PGA tour events. He has a track record of doing well on a variety of tours and championships. Thomas won the FedEx Cup championship as well.
Thomas could easily have snatched the second spot but for his lack of marquee wins to close the year and his inability to put pressure on Dustin Johnson during two days of Masters, he is unable to win.
He had a great 2022, with two wins. But we dare to say that the pressure is on the 27-year old to win his second major next season. He’ll soon be approaching McIlroy’s drought of no major titles in his four prime years.
4. Jon Rahm
Age: 26 years
Rahm will finish the year at No. Rahm will finish the year as No. 2 in the world, but 4th on our power rankings because he failed to deliver in the two majors. He tied for seventh at Masters, but he finished 72-71 on Saturday when Augusta was as easy as ever. This disappointment from the green jacket hopeful is not surprising.
Rahm still had a fantastic year, with two wins at the Memorial and at the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields. He will be expected to take the next step in his life and win his first major title in 2022.
He is a Spanish professional golfer and the first number one amateur golfer with a ranking record for 60 weeks. According to reports, Rahm signed a multi-year agreement with Callaway Golf Company.
5. Alexander Victor Schauffele
Age: 27 years
Alexander is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA and European Tour. He is also known by the name Xander Schauffele. He is the recipient of the World Golf Championship and FedEx Cup playoffs awards, as well as the PGA Tour professional award.
Schauffele was the winner of 2022, despite not having won an official Tour title this year. After the June restart, he ranked second in strokes won: total per round. He also left with zero trophies. He finished second in the FedEx Cup which gained the lowest 72-hole score from the Tour Championship.
Because he seeks his first major title, the 27-year old Schauffele should be watched in 2022. Schauffele seems to be a major factor in each major in which he competes. He will win at least one of these, regardless of whether it is next year or the previous.
6. Rory McIlroy
Age: 32 years
McIlroy’s performance upon the PGA Tour’s return raised for debate, but his final months were exactly what we have come to expect from him, even though he didn’t win.
McIlroy was T-8 at U.S. Open, but he recovered from a disappointing Masters round to finish at T-5. Although he didn’t intend to be a top-10 player, his end-of-year form suggests that he will return to the top in 2022.
He is a professional Northern Irish golfer. He has been a part of the European and PGA Tours. He has spent 100 weeks in the World Golf Ranking, which ranks him among the top golfers in the world.
7. Collin Morikawa
Age: 24 years
C Morikawa, an American professional golfer, is known as. In 2018, he was ranked the top golfer in the World Amateur Golf Rankings. He has won the first rankings in Major championship, The World Golf Championship, as well as 1 PGA Tour.
It was a great year for Morikawa. The 23-year old moved up from No. 65 in the world to No 7. He is the 7th because of two outstanding victories, including his August PGA Championship victory.
His performance in the final months was not up to par. Morikawa, who was uncharacteristically absent in back-to-back cuts, placed outside the top 40 for his last two starts. His 2022 performance set a high bar for his annual goals moving forward.
8. Webb Simpson
Age: 35 years
Simpson’s solid achievement continued after he won the second event, which was held following the hiatus. This included a T-8 finish in the U.S. Open, as well as his second consecutive top-10 result at Masters. Simpson also competed at the Wyndham Championship, before gaining third.
Simpson’s position among the best players in golf is established even more remarkable by becoming the shortest hitter on the list. Over the next few years, it will be interesting to see how long Simpson can keep rankings in the top tier of golf as the best players continue hitting it further.
He is an American professional golfer. His legendary skills and abilities enable him to win in the PGA Championship, Masters Tournament, and four PGA Tour playoff events.
9. Patrick Nathaniel Reed
Age: 30 years
