Mixed fortunes in golf rankings for Simon Dyson
12:22pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in Sport
YORK’S Simon Dyson has undergone mixed fortunes in two sets of rankings ahead of the start of a European Tour event he has won three times.
Dyson competes in the KLM Dutch Open – a title he captured in 2006, 2009 and then two years ago – on Thursday buoyed by a tie for 24th place in the European Masters in Switzerland last weekend.
Despite his improved form Dyson dipped seven places to 169th in the world rankings.
But he rose in the ratings for the Race to Dubai, for which the leading 60 players qualify for the European Tour’s $8½ million climax in late November.
Recovering from a torrid opening six months to the year, Dyson is now in 68th place with prize money of 324,000 euros. In 60th spot is three-time major winner Padraig Harrington on 375,000 with Harrogate GC’s John Parry just one place behind with 374,000 euros.
