McIlroy 43rd in the world this year

Rory McIlroy could do with a big week. Form is fleeting and class is permanent but as the 2013 season nears its equator its worth noting that current world rankings bear little relation to reality if we count the points gained this year alone rather than a player’s average over the last two years.

While Tiger Woods is still No 1, Rory McIlroy is No 43 on form in 2013 rather than No 2 while Billy Horschel is No 8 rather than 34th.

Two wins for world No 9 Graeme McDowell leave him 10th in the 2013 list - a fair reflection considering he has missed the cut in both majors as well as The Players and the BMW PGA.

But Shane Lowry, who was 54th in the world in January and currenly lies 86th, would be a 142nd on points gained in this season.
