Jaclyn Lee begins her second week atop the amateur rankings by picking up two places in the world rankings as she continues her quest at LPGA Q-School. The Golf Canada National Team member from Calgary has advanced through to the final stage, where the top 45 players will earn LPGA status for 2019.

After relinquishing the top amateur ranking in Canada last week, Golf Canada National Team member Maddie Szeryk falls off the amateur world rankings table following completion of the second stage of LPGA Q-School.
