Rickie Fowler of the USA has regained the No 1 spot in The R&A World Amateur Golf Ranking as England's Daniel Willett moves into the professional game after leading the world's amateurs for the past 12 weeks.


Fowler, a key member of the US Walker Cup team last year, now becomes the longest reigning incumbent of the No 1 position at 25 weeks. 


Others to have held the top place in the Ranking are Jamie Moul of England who led for 16 weeks, Jamie Lovemark (USA) for eight weeks, Richie Ramsay (Scotland) for six, Mark H McCormack Medal winner Colt Knost (USA) for five and Rory McIlroy (Ireland) one week.


Three more key movers this week in the top 10 are Jorge Campillo (Spain) - up one place to No 5, Chris Wood (England) - up 15 to No 9 after victory in the Welsh Stroke Play at Conwy, and Zack Sucher (USA) - up two to No 10 a week after winning the NCAA East Regional.
