Shuffle of No. 1 ranking could continue this week at Arnold Palmer Invitational

Shuffle of No. 1 ranking could continue this week at Arnold Palmer Invitational ORLANDO, Fla. - The No. 1 ranking is up for grabs this week at Bay Hill, but what's new? Every week is pretty much the same story. Justin Rose, who fell to No. 2 behind Dustin Johnson last week, could retake the top spot during this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club and Lodge with a strong showing. World No. 3 Brooks Koepka, who passed Justin Thomas, following a runner-up finish at last week's Honda Classic, could move back into the top spot with a win. The sudden movement and volatility at the top of the official world rankings rarely has been more dramatic or involved three or four players with major championships on their resumes.

While the the Specials (the movement’s leaders) Madness, the Selecter, the Bodysnatchers and others hewed to a more punk-meets-ska template, from the beginning the Beat set their own tempo, incorporating more reggae into their sound along with lead singer Dave Wakeling’s original and politically tinged lyrics. Roger was a combination toaster and hypeman, dancing energetically across the stage, playing percussion and pumping up the crowd along with his widely imitated toast/raps during the songs.
