Performances of the week

Michel puts on Master class

 

Lukas Michel put on something of a masterclass over the closing holes of Victoria Golf Club to win the Australian Master of the Amateurs. The reigning U.S. Mid-Amateur Champion birdied three of the last four holes in a final round 69, 3-under-par, to post a 6-under 282 total. It gave him a two-shot victory over compatriot Ryan Thomas. The Melbourne resident edges up two places on this week’s World Amateur Golf Ranking® to 74th. Thomas climbs 316 spots to 1,411th.

 

Moss bosses Junior Orange Bowl

 

Sebastian Moss was always going to be hard to beat after an opening 9-under 62 in the Junior Orange Bowl at the Biltmore Golf Club in Coral Gables, Florida. So it proved. The Wesley Chapel, Florida resident added further rounds of 69, 68 and 73 to post a 12-under 272. It was good enough for a three-shot victory. It also sees him jump 266 rankings to 2,482nd.

 

Allen comes from three behind to win Saguaro

 

Tucker Allen improves his WAGR® status by 1,132 places to a personal best 2,274th with victory in the Saguaro Amateur at Ak­-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club in Arizona. The Texas resident was three adrift heading into the final round after posting rounds of 66 and 70. His closing 69, 3 under par, gave him an 11-under 205 and a one-shot victory.

 

Biggest ranking improvement

 

Australia’s Abel Eduard soars 1,795 positions to a high of world number 4,244th after victory in the South Australian Junior Masters. It was Eduard’s second win in his last three tournaments to go with his Victorian Junior Open triumph at the end of last year. There are no new top 20 or 50 players this week.

England’s Ellen Hume is 45 rankings better off in 149th position, her highest WAGR® status, after winning The Sally at Oceanside Country Club in Ormond Beach, Florida. The Ole Miss University student said the weather “does remind me of home.
