Thomas replaces Johnson as world number one

Thomas was the victor of the Jack Nicklaus Award as the PGA Tour Player of the Year for the 2016-17 season.

After 64 weeks at the summit of world golf, Dustin Johnson's time at the top is over.

Thomas has become the 21st world number one.

Johnson is something of an interloper in such company; he was been a beneficiary of an erratic period in the world game when the last 11 Majors have been won by different players.

Thomas is the reigning PGA Championship victor, and Webb Simpson's victory Sunday gives the US control of the four majors and The Players for the first time in 17 years.

The new World No.1 hasn't missed an individual cut since The Open past year, and has a worse finish of T22 in 2018.

After a stellar college career at the University of Alabama he made his professional debut at the 2013 Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

He also finished 2nd at the Tour Championship to win his first FedEx Cup in 2017.

The Players Championship just concluded this weekend at TPC Sawgrass, and Webb Simpson took home the title.

Talking to the media after his final round at the Players Championship, Thomas said that reaching the top was a goal of his, but he will only feel happy if he manages to remain in the top spot for a long period of time. "I want to stay there". 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.

Owning the position is a noble aspiration but one he is likely to find hard to fulfil.
