Sweden's Robin Wingardh entered the top 50 of the World Amateur Golf Ranking following his great start to the new US College season, in which he shared the medallist honours at the Ping-Golfweek Preview.
Wingardh, a student at the University of Tennessee, shot a six-under-par total of 206 over three rounds at the Inverness Club in Ohio to share the individual spoils with American Morgan Hoffman. The results lifts Wingardh 30 places in the rankings to a new high of 33rd, making him the second highest ranked Swedish player after Bjorn Akesson.
Further down the rankings the most significant move was made by Korea's Tae-hoon Song, whose incredible tie for ninth place at last week's Korea Open rocketed him up 322 places to number 180 in the world. Song's first season in top-level competitive golf has been an incredible start to his career: he won the Doug Sanders Junior Championship, had a good week at the Korean Amateur, and made the cut at the Maekyung Open earlier in the season.
