Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson could end the week TIED as World No.1

No two golfers have ever shared the World No.1 ranking during a week - it could happen, but it's very unlikely!

Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson like to do many things together. They hang out together, they practice together and they go to the gym together. They may even share a World No.1 ranking position together this Sunday - albeit it's highly unlikely!



Since the beginning of the Official World Golf Ranking system back in 1986, no two players have ever shared the #1 spot for a week.

But according to stats guru Nosferatu on Twitter, the two close friends COULD become co-No.1's should the following results happen at this week's WGC-HSBC Champions in China on Sunday...



Johnson needs to finish tied second with three other players, with Koepka in solo 51st. Oh, and defending champion Justin Rose must not win. Yeah, so as we said, not much needs to happen! 

Koepka has won three times in 2018 with two majors and victory at last week's CJ Cup, which sent him to the summit of world golf for the first time in his career.

Johnson, the world number two, has enjoyed a cumulative total of 81 weeks as the world's best player, with his record streak of consecutive weeks standing at 64 between February 19 and May 12, 2018. 

Koepka and Johnson reportedly came to blows at the Ryder Cup, but appear to have cleared the air judging by photographs of them playing badminton together in China earlier this week.
