Walker Cup star, Peter Uihlein, claimed his second title of the autumn in Week 46 when he took medalist honours at the Gifford Collegiate at CordeValle. The Oklahoma State sophomore posted a 14-under-par, three-round total of 202 to finish five strokes clear of second-placed Shiwan Kim of Stanford.

 

Uihlein, who was undefeated for the USA against Great Britain and Ireland in September, remains WAGRanked 7, while Kim is up 12 places to 30th.

 

In Argentina, at Los Lagartos Country Club, Emiliano Grillo won the individual title at the Copa Juan Carlos Tailhade. Grillo, who lives in Bradenton, Florida, completed four rounds in 277 strokes to claim the win.

 

“Competing in the United States has helped me both mentally and technically,” said Grillo. Before I never took less than 30 putts per round but now I’m regularly under.”

 

Thanks to his success at the event, at which Ryan Dreyer and JG Claassen claimed the team prize for South Africa, Grillo advances 10 positions up the Ranking to 155th. Dreyer and Claasen advance 90 and nine places to WAGRank 132 and WAGRank 70 respectively. 

 

Meanwhile, in France, Sebastian Gros won the Grand Prix de la Ligue at Golf de Servanes. His three-round total of 207 gave him a comfortable five-shot margin of victory over nearest rival, Olivier Rozner. Gros is rewarded with a 68-position leap to 479th.

 

Finally, the University of San Francisco’s Domingo Jojola triumphed at the St Mary’s Invitational for the second successive year. The senior finished the tournament, held at Poppy Hills Golf Club in Pebble Beach, California, four strokes ahead of the field on a seven-under-par total of 209 having commenced his final round one stroke off the lead. Jojola ends the week 282 places higher at WAGRank 560.
