Rory's back, with two wins in six starts, and, after sliding as low as 11th in the World Rankings, he's up to second. The golf world seems to be as close to normal now as it has been all year, with McIlroy's third major, Tiger back and making cuts (though not quite competing), and Phil Mickelson demonstrating that he's still got something in the gas tank after a slow start to the year. What The Open Championship did for me, however, was alert me to the fact that my rankings were severely lacking when it comes to more worldly players, such as Thomas Bjorn or Robert Karlsson. That's been adjusted this week and will be going forward as I add other tour events to the rankings.#452434096 / gettyimages.comThrough mysticism, wisdom, arbitrary numbers pulled from thin air, and some serious number crunching, I assign each player a number, called The Aggregate, each week. That number, out of 100 with lower being better, is a collection of rankings and statistics that generally tell how a player has performed in the recent past and, for fantasy teams, can indicate whether is player is getting hot or cooling off. As I update my Excel Spre- *ahem*- Ancient Book of Knowledge with each week's performances, a differential is generated based on where they were, and where they may be going. One thing you'll notice, based on how the system works, is that the week's winner may not be the top mover. For my power rankings, I take this aggregate and combine it with past performance at that tournament to find my list.Included below are my top 10 players overall, as well. Some of these players may appear here but not my Power Rankings, depending on how their tournament history affects their positioning and whether they're playing this week. This Top 10 should provide clearer insight as to how a player has been performing over the recent past. There may appear to be some inconsistencies here as these numbers now reflect world results.Top 10 MoversRickie Fowler - (+19.6) to 25Ryan Moore - (+17.6) to 18.2Francesco Molinari - (+17) to 35.2Angel Cabrera - (+16.2) to 31Matteo Manassero - (+16.2) to 40.6Phil Mickelson - (+15.4) to 24.4D.A.
