Rickie Fowler (USA) regained his position at the top of The R&A World Amateur Golf Ranking as Jorge Campillo, Reinier Saxton and Benjamin Hebert established a European stronghold in the top five.

 

Fowler is now enjoying his third spell as the world's top-ranked amateur.  He was deposed last week by fellow American Michael Thompson who has now joined the pro ranks.

 

Campillo (Spain) shared second place in the European Men's Team individual placing and moved up on to Fowler's shoulder.  Saxton, a 25-year-old from the Netherlands, won this year's Amateur Championship at Turnberry and his finish in the European event moved him up three places to No 3.  Top French player Hebert jumped five places to No 5 in the same event which was won by
Wallace Booth of Scotland as he rounded off a fine five-week spell.

 

Eighth place in the European event earned Gareth Shaw of Ireland a nine-place jump to No 9 and Rory Hie (USA) took over the No 10 spot after victory in the Dogwood Invitational and a share of 19th place in the North and South Amateur.
