The Official World Golf Rankings have a point system to determine who the best golfers in the world right now are. But we want to know what you think. Who should be the top-ranked golfer on tour? Is it Dustin Johnson or Rory McIlroy? Is Jordan Spieth back in the hunt? Or has the return of Tiger Woods, maybe the best golfer of all time, got you convinced?

Vote for the best golfers in the world today, and add any favorites you don't see below.
