McIlroy gives Britain top 3 places in rankings
London: British golfers hold the top three spots in the world rankings, the first time that`s happened in the 25-year history of the rankings.
Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland rose to third Monday following his triumph at the U.S. Open. Englishmen Luke Donald and Lee Westwood are No. 1 and No. 2.
Having started the year at No. 10, McIlroy overtook PGA Champion Martin Kaymer without playing last weekend because of the German`s poor showing at the BMW International Open.
McIlroy won the U.S. Open by a record score at Congressional on June 19. His next tournament is the British Open at Royal St. George`s in Sandwich, England, starting July 14.
