Thomas planning long stay at number one

Justin Thomas hits onto the ninth green during the third round of the Players Championship on Saturday Thomas planning long stay at number one

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.

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.

An 11th place finish on Sunday night at a Players' Championship dominated by victor Webb Simpson took him to No 1.

Thomas finished with his best round of the week in Florida, shooting a six-under 66 to finish 11 under.

Thomas has become the 21st world number one. Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose also could have dethroned Johnson during the Players Championship.

Johnson had enjoyed 64 consecutive weeks as world number one. Thomas finished 2017 at No. 3 in the world, behind Johnson and Spieth.

Thomas won his first major at the PGA Championship last August. It is these good performances that lead him to collect last years FedEx Cup and Player of the Year awards.

The 2017 US PGA Championship victor said: "It's important, but it's not something where it's like I just want to do it once".

"It means a lot, but it's something I want to have for a long time, it's not something I just want to have once", Thomas said following the Players Championship. Only Tiger Woods, Greg Norman and Nick Faldo have had longer ones, and only four men including Rory McIlroy have ever spent more total weeks as the top-ranked player in the world.
