Rodgers, Lee Ascend To Top Of Amateur Rankings

by Jim Nugent - March 3, 2014

Two new names top the World Amateur Golf Rankings, as Patrick Rodgers of the United States replaced England’s Matthew Fitzpatrick as the new world No. 1 and Australia’s Minjee Lee took the top women’s ranking.

Rodgers (left) attained his new status thanks to winning the Prestige at PGA West in La Quinta, Calif., his seventh collegiate victory. The Stanford University student posted a 54-hole, 9-under-par total of 204 for a one-shot victory ahead of Arizona State’s Max Rottluff. Rodgers, a two-time Walker Cup player, swapped places with Fitzpatrick, relegating the reigning U.S. Amateur champion to world No. 2 after 21 weeks on top.

In the women’s rankings, Lee took the top spot from Alison Lee of the United States. Minjee Lee moved up two places after winning the Australian Ladies Professional Golf tour’s Oates Victorian Open. She plans to remain an amateur until late 2014. Alison Lee dropped to second after holding the top spot for 16 weeks.
