Performances of the week

Super Suber breaks into top 60

 

Jackson Suber of the United States moves into the World Amateur Golf Ranking® top 60 for the first time after a peerless performance in the LSU Invitational. The Ole Miss student was the only player to better par in all three rounds. He sandwiched a 3-under-par 69 between a pair of 71s around the University Club in Baton Rouge. His 5-under-par 211 total gave him a three-shot victory. It also sees him jump 41 rankings to 52nd.

 

Playoff win takes Erickson to new heights

 

Dan Erickson survived a playoff over fellow American Hunter Ostrom to win the Border Olympics at Laredo Country Club in Texas. The Texas A&M student emerged triumphant over his University of Texas rival with a birdie at the second extra hole after the pair ended 54 holes tied on 4-under 212. Both reach personal best WAGR® positions. Erickson climbs 71 positions to 74th, while Ostrom is 56 places better off in 147th.

 

Maas adds encore to SA Amateur win

 

Christiaan Maas joins the list of players reaching career highs on the WAGR® table this week. The 18-year-old South African added the Cape Province Open to the South African Amateur title he lifted the previous week. The Pretoria native won by three shots for his fourth victory in seven starts this year, a stretch in which he’s never finished worse than seventh. Maas is now the world’s 155th best player after a rise of 35 places.

 

Top 50 movers

 

England’s Joe Long is the only new top 50 player in a week with no new top 20 entrants. Long, who won last year’s Amateur Championship at Royal Birkdale, makes a two-ranking move to 49th.

 

Biggest ranking improvement

 

Jacobo Cestino’s Spanish International Seniors' Championship victory makes him the most improved player. He climbs 1,238 positions to a career-best 4,572nd.

Tatematsu upsets form book

 

Rina Tatematsu began the ICON Invitational ranked 759th in the world, but that didn’t deter the Thai player from sprinting away from a stellar field to win by three shots.

Tatematsu breaks into the top 350 for the first time, soaring 436 positions on this week’s World Amateur Golf Ranking® to 323rd.

 

Fuller takes advantage of local knowledge

 

England’s Annabell Fuller moves back into the world top 35 after using home course advantage to win the Florida Gators Invitational over the Mark Bostwick Golf Course in Gainesville, Florida, the University of Florida’s home course. Fuller, a University of Florida student, took command with an opening 67, 3-under, to lead by two shots. Further rounds of 72 and 66 saw her post a 5-under 205 and a three-shot victory.

The Wake Forest student was the only player to shoot level par for 54 holes thanks to rounds of 73, 74 and 69 for a 216 tally.
