Jorge Campillo of Spain is riding a rich vein of form in the United States, the 21-year-old Indiana University student winning for the third week in a row to break into The R&A World Amateur Golf Ranking top-10.

 

The third tournament victory in as many weeks for Spain's leading amateur was achieved in the Big Ten Championship at East Lansing, Michigan, and moved him up six places to WAGR No 9. In the previous two weeks he had won the Boilermaker Invitational at West Lafayette, Indiana, and the Missouri Tiger Intercollegiate in Columbia.

 

In the busiest week of the 2008 season so far a total of 50 counting events were played in nine countries and over 15,000 rounds of golf were surveyed in compiling the Ranking.

 

England's Daniel Willett retains his position as the world's leading amateur and Joel Sjoholm of Sweden has moved up one place to No 5.  Both players had a break from stroke play golf last week when successfully representing Europe in the Michael Bonallack Trophy at Valderrama.

 


Another big move - up 20 places to No 17 - has been made by Charlie Holland of the United States who finished tied for fifth in the Big 12 Championship in Trinity, Texas, a week after a second-place finish in the Morris Williams Intercollegiate.  Earlier in the year he won the Fresno St Lexus Classic.
