There is no change at the top in week 23 of the World Amateur Golf Ranking.  US Walker Cup player Peter Uihlein remains in the number one position after finishing in joint second place in the NCAA Division 1 Stroke Play behind Scott Langley, who moves up 17 places to 16. Nick Taylor keeps his number two spot despite a disappointing NCAA performance.  Alex Ching of the USA, who tied Uihlein for second place in the NCAA, moves up from 72nd place to 33rd.
 
Matthew Southgate of England won the prestigious St Andrews Links Trophy from a packed international field to move into the top 400 and fellow English player Stiggy Hodgson, who finished tied for second place, moved up 33 places to 14th in the Ranking. French pair Romain Wattel and Victor Dubuisson tied for seventh place at St Andrews, but while Dubuisson slipped one place to seventh, Wattel, the runaway victor in the Scottish Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship a week earlier, climbed one place to 11th.
 
Close behind third-placed Bud Cauley in the Ranking is another American player, Jonathan Randolph, who climbed three places after his runner-up finish in the Mississippi State Championship at Jackson.  Winner of the event was Fletcher Johnson of the USA who makes his first WAGR appearance.
