Joel Sjoholm of Sweden has leap-frogged Kevin Chappell of the USA to regain the No 5 spot in The R&A World Amateur Golf Ranking that he claimed two weeks ago as Daniel Willett of England holds on to top spot.

 

Sjoholm, winner this season of the Colonial Athletic Association Championship at Williamsburg, Virginia, and the John Hayt Collegiate at Sawgrass in Florida, is Sweden's number one player.

 

Biggest move into the top echelons of the Ranking has come from Cameron Johnston of South Africa who has climbed 38 places to No 10 with a fourth-place finish in the Boland Amateur at Paari.  Last week he was also fourth in the Western Province Amateur after reacing the semi-finals of the South African Match Play earlier in the year.

 

Jacques Blaauw, the winner of the SA Match Play, finished seventh in the Boland event and moves up three places to WAGR No 20.
