Michael Thompson of the USA has moved up one place to take over the No 1 position in The R&A World Amateur Golf Ranking from compatriot Rickie Fowler. An outstanding finish in the US Open to tie Steve Stricker in 29th place with rounds of 74-73-73-72 for a 292 total boosted his points total.
He followed up with another solid performance in a USPGA Tour event, the Travelers Championship, with rounds of 65-67-72-73 for a share of 59th place.
Fowler has twice led the Ranking, but now drops back into second spot. Reinier Saxton of the Netherlands, who jumped into the top 10 with victory in The Amateur Championship, has moved up a further place to No 6, swapping places with Danny Lee of New Zealand.
