Day loses World No 1 spot to Spieth

Australian golfer Jason Day has lost his world No.1 ranking to Jordan Spieth after a top-ten finish at the WGC event in Shanghai was enough for the American to reclaim top spot. 
Day didn't have a chance to stop Spieth's charge after he decided to skip the Shanghai event to attend the birth of his second child. 
Spieth - who finished seventh behind the eventual winner, Scotsman Russell Knox, in China - was delighted to be top of the pile again. 
"(Getting back to number one) was certainly a goal coming into this week," Spieth said after his round.
"When that No.1 ranking slips away, it leaves some unrest in you and you really want to get back at it."
Spieth, 22, has become the poster boy of American golf in light of his two major successes this year - the Masters and US Open.
