  • Scottie Scheffler is at the top of the PGA Tour power rankings.
  • Rory McIlroy occupies the No. 2 spot.
  • Sahith Theegala comes in at No. 10.

The best golfers on the PGA Tour find themselves with the best PGA Tour odds every week, but these golfers change a great deal over the course of the year.

For instance, Justin Thomas may win a few tournaments early in the year and have the best Masters odds but if he gets into a slump, he may drop when it comes to U.S. Open odds.

Here are the updated PGA Tour power rankings.

PGA Tour Power Rankings: Best Players on PGA Tour Right Now

1. Scottie Scheffler

Scheffler is No. 1 and it’s not even close. This spring, he’s won the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Players Championship, the Masters and the RBC Heritage. In 10 starts this calendar year, he has four wins and nine top 10s.

2. Rory McIlroy

Thanks to two straight wins — the Zurich Classic (with Shane Lowry) and the Wells Fargo Championship — McIlroy has jumped to No. 2 in the rankings and separated himself from the rest of the group behind Scheffler.

3. Xander Schauffele

While he hasn’t won a major, Schauffele always seems to be in the mix at them, which he was again at the Masters, finishing solo eighth. He’s one of the most consistent players on the PGA Tour, and it wouldn’t be stunning to see him get his first major this season. Schauffele has eight top 10s and two runner-ups this season.

4. Wyndham Clark

After a strong start to the season, Clark has fallen back of late and allowed McIlroy and Schauffele to pass him in the rankings. Still, the No. 4 ranked player in the world has a chance to win each time he tees it up.

5. Ludvig Aberg

Aberg is now the 6th-ranked player in the world and has only played in one major where he finished runner-up to Scheffler at the Masters. He’s finished inside the top 25 in eight straight events and that includes five top 10s.

6. Max Homa

It’s been a bit of a struggle for Homa this season, but he appeared to find something at the Masters, finishing T-3. Ranked No. 9 in the Official World Golf Rankings, the week at Augusta could give him the confidence he needs to break out in a big way.

7. Collin Morikawa

Morikawa is similar to Homa this season but finished T-3 at the Masters. He comes in at No. 13 in the Official World Golf Rankings, and if what he discovered with his swing at Augusta translates to other weeks, he should find himself in contention a lot more.

8. Hideki Matsuyama

Matsuyama is quietly having a very solid 2024 season. Not only did he win the Genesis Invitational, but he has four other top-15 finishes, including a T-6 at the Players Championship.

9. Patrick Cantlay

Cantlay has had a ton of success on the PGA Tour but struggles in majors. In 25 major championships, he has just one top five finish. Despite this, he’s an insane talent and is still one of the best players in the game. So far in 2024, he has six top 25s in 11 events.

10. Sahith Theegala

Theegala is quietly having a terrific season. Ranked No. 12 in the Official World Golf Rankings, he has five top 10s this season, including two solo second-place finishes. He’s one of the best young players on the PGA Tour.
