A down week for a majority of the Top 10 with only three individuals either making gains or maintaining their standing in the world rankings.

Former No. 1 ranked Canadian Garrett Rank slipped 18 spots despite finishing third at the Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship. That follows a runner-up finish last year and winning the event in 2016. It’s is fifth top 3 result in 2018.

The biggest move came outside the Top 10 as Laurent Desmarchais climbed 1,127 spots to vault up to the No. 11 spot in the Canadian rankings after winning the Golf Quebec Junior Provincial Match-Play Championship. It was his third win of the year and sixth top 10 finish in eight events in 2018.

Top ranked Adam Hadwin gained five places in the world rankings after finishing in a tie for 11th at The Northern Trust, the first event in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. The result was worth 8.74 world ranking points for Hadwin – his biggest points-paying finish since a top 10 result at the WGC-Mexico Championship. It also ended a string of back-to-back missed cuts and was his first top 20 finish since May. Hadwin moved up to No. 52 in the FedEx Cup standings, which means he would qualify for the third of four playoff events should he maintain that standing this weekend.

The only other Canadian to qualify for the FedEx Cup, Nick Taylor, missed the cut and that left him outside of the top 100 needed to advance to the next round.
