Two players by the name of Lee make significant moves inside the top 20 of the Women’s World Amateur Golf Rankings this week. Alison Lee moves to world number three, while Erynne Lee becomes the world’s 13th best woman amateur.
The two UCLA players took the top two spots in the Mason Rudolph Championship at the Legends North Course in Franklin, Tennessee. Erynne earned her third college golf victory with a 54-hole total of 209, 7-under-par, while Alison finished one stroke behind her in second place.
Alison jumps up five places to sit in third spot behind world number one Lydia Ko and Australia’s Su-Hyun Oh. Erynne improves six places this week.
Ashlan Ramsay of the United States moves one spot this week following victory in the Lady Paladin Invitational. The Clemson player compiled a 7-under-par 54-hole total of 209 to win by three shots. Ramsay moves to world number 16.
U.S. Curtis Cup player Emily Tubert moves inside this week’s top 50 thanks to winning the Mercedes-Benz Intercollegiate. Tubert, a student at the University of Arkansas, won the weather-shortened tournament by three shots after rounds of 69 and 68 for a 36-hole total of 137, 5-under-par. Tubert climbs 15 places to 41st in the world.
Cassy Isagawa also breaks into this week’s top 50 after winning the Branch Law Firm-Dick McGuire tournament. The University of Oregon player ran out a six-shot winner after returning a 12-under-par 207. Isagawa jumps 26 places this week to 43rd.
England’s Lauren Taylor is the only other player this week to break into the top 50. The 2011 Ladies’ British Amateur champion moves six places to sit 48th on the WAGR table.
Fifty-four holes couldn’t separate Scott Vincent and Stewart Jolly in the Golfweek Conference Challenge at Spirit Hollow Golf Course in Burlington, Indiana. They shared the title to climb up this week’s World Amateur Golf Ranking as a result.
Jolly began the final round in a three-way tie for the lead. The Louisiana State player’s closing 3-under 69 for a 6-under-par 54-hole total of 210 normally would have been good enough to win. However, Virginia Tech’s Vincent returned the low round of the tournament with a closing 8-under-par 64 to tie. The native of Zimbabwe tied the record for low score by a Virginia Tech player, matching PGA Tour player Johnson Wagner’s 64 in 2002.
Vincent breaks into this week’s top 50 as a result. He jumps 24 spots to 47th, the highest ranked Zimbabwean on the WAGR table. Jolly climbs to world number 121 from last week’s ranking of 173rd.
Former British Boys’ champion Emilio Cuartero (Pictured Right) moves inside this world’s top 100 following victory in the Columbia Regional Preview. The Spaniard led his University of Missouri team to the team title by taking the individual prize by five shots.
Cuartero, who won the 2007 British Boy’s Championship at Royal Porthcawl, returned scores of 68, 67 and 70 for a 205 total of 11-under-par. The Spaniard improves his ranking to 74th from last week’s position at 107th. He is the third highest ranked Spanish player on the WAGR table.
Two players break into this week’s top 20. Malaysia’s Gavin Kyle Green, a student at the University of New Mexico, improves two places to 19th. England’s Gregory Eason, who plays college golf for the University of Central Florida, takes 20th spot after an improvement of four places.
