Hugo Bernard was one of three players in the Top-10 to make a positive gain in this week’s world rankings. The Quebec golfer will finish the year as the only other Canadian amateur ranked inside the Top-10. The Golf Canada National Squad member solidified his standing with a number of top 10 performances this past year, including medalist honours at the Palm Beach County Four Ball. He also recorded his third straight top-5 result at the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship, finishing in a tie for fourth. A tie for third at the Murat Cup, tie for ninth at the Terra Cotta Invitational and a tie for seventh at the South American Amateur also highlight his resume in 2017.

One significant change outside the Top-10. Steven Diack climbs five places to move into the the top 20, replacing Golf Canada Development Squad member Johnny Travale.

Former Golf Canada National Team member Stuart MacDonald will be among the Canadians attempting to improve his playing status on the Tour at this week’s qualifying school. He’s already assured a tour card for making it to the Final Stage and if he can finish in the top 45, he’s assured of a healthy number of starts through the first part of the 2018 season to try and further improve his standing.

No notable changes in the Top 10 but this week is notable for what happened outside that list.

Sunil Richard Jung Bell makes his debut in not only the Canadian rankings but the official world rankings after finishing in a tie for seventh at the Asian Tour’s KG S&H City Asian Golf Championship. That was good for a 696 place jump in the world rankings, putting him inside the top 20 in Canada at No. 19. The 2.38 world rankings points earned were the first of Jung’s career in just his third career professional tour start – the previous two coming on the European Challenge Tour.

Mike Weir re-enters the Canadian rankings, picking up 603 spots  after finishing in a tie for 15th at the Australian PGA Championship. The result was worth 1.96 world ranking points, his first points-paying finish since 2014. If you’re keeping count, that’s a stretch of 38 tournaments. Since 2011, Weir has missed 71 cuts through various injuries and poor form. The Australian event marked the second weekend cut he has made in his last three tournaments and third in his last six starts. After finishing 2016 outside the world rankings, the 2003 Masters champion now finds himself up to No. 23 in the Canadian table.

1. Adam Hadwin Abbotsford, BC PGA 57 -1
