Rory McIlroy is back on top! And he wasted little time declaring it was an ‘easy’ move back to being golf’s World No. 1 ranked golfer after Luke Donald finished in a share of 37th in the RBC Heritage Classic at Hilton Head, South Carolina.

McIlroy regained his World No. 1 ranking just four weeks after being knocked off by Donald. His last experience as world number 1 lasted just 2 weeks due to Donald winning the Transitions Championship play-off at Palm Beach Gardens.

Donald needed to finish eighth or higher at the RBC Heritage, but alas posted a final round of 71 on the Harbour Town course last weekend. Luke, who was headed straight home to his young family, tweeted before leaving Hilton Head: “Not my best week, getting used to leaving this place ranked #2,”. McIlroy tweeted soon after: “No. 1 again without touching a golf club this week…. I wish it was that easy!”

That’s the way Rory, now all you’ve got to do is stay there.
