It is the first time that a former Alabama golfer has moved into the No. 1 spot as the top golfer in the world.

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

Thomas is eager to continue his good form and is desperate not to be overtaken as the world number one.

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". 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.
