PGA Tour Power Rankings: Phil Mickelson fires his way into the top 10

Phil Mickelson's first win in five years saw him enter our power rankings for the first time

Phil Mickelson won for the first time in almost five years at the WGC Mexico Championship.

He beat out Justin Thomas in a playoff after the now world number two had come from 11 behind at the start of the weekend to lead by two when he finished his round.

Mickelson has shown some great form of late and his win comes after top six finishes in his previous three starts. He seems to be rounding into form at the right time and has a real chance to take Jack Nicklaus’ record as the oldest player to ever win the Masters.

On to this week’s rankings. There are two new entries, including the aforementioned Mickelson.

Tommy Fleetwood

10 – Gary Woodland

Previous rank – 8

Couldn’t follow up his recent good form in Mexico. His +2 total left him 50th out of the 64-man field.

9 – Tommy Fleetwood

Previous rank – 10

Another good showing from the Englishman. Not the best start to the tournament but 67-66 over the weekend saw him shoot up the leaderboard. He is quickly becoming a player that has to be considered a contender every time he tees it up.
