Oklahoma State freshman, Rickie Fowler has moved back to the top of the World Amateur Golf Rankings following his 4th at the Ping/Golfweek. 19-year-old Fowler, who occupied the No 1 spot from week 32 to week 34, was a revelation at the Walker Cup winning three out of his four matches. He was hot on the heels of Colt Knost to be the inaugural winner of the Mark H McCormack Medal, narrowly missing out on beating his Walker Cup team-mate to the award for finishing the season as the world’s number 1 amateur.
Bjorn Akesson moved into the world’s top 50 following his win of the TourGolf Open at Ronneback. The win secured a rise of 26 places in the world rankings for the Swede, moving him from No 72 to No 46.
