Weekly Top-10 Rankings powered by CP


One week after claiming the No. 1 ranking in Canada, Mackenzie Hughes remained in the top perch. The Golf Canada Young Pro squad member was the only one in the Top-10 to maintain his world standing as every other golfer lost ground in the rankings.

From last week, when a technical glitch prevented the full world rankings to be delivered, Adam Svensson is the new No. 9 ranked player, moving past Richard T. Lee in the Canadian rankings.

Outside the Top-10, Justin Shin made a big move, climbing up to No. 12 in Canada, after finishing third at the PGA Tour China event. It was his best finish on the PGA-sponsored Chinese tour since a tie for second back in June. The result also earned him a trip to the Tour’s third and final qualifying stage next month.

One week after losing a spot in the world rankings, Brooke Henderson reclaimed the No. 7 overall ranking, moving past Inbee Park. Henderson and Maude-Aimee Leblanc were the only players in the Top-10 to make positive gains this past week.

No. 2 Alena Sharp and No. 6 Samantha Richdale maintained their standings while everyone else lost ground.

Richdale will be among nine Canadians taking part in the LPGA Tour’s final qualifying stage, which gets underway on Nov. 30.

No. 4 Augusta James leads the Top-10 Canadian contingent as the highest ranked Canadian player in the field. She is joined by No. 5 Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Richdale, No. 9 Brittany Marchand and No. 10 Sara-Maude Juneau. LPGA veteran Lorie Kane (No. 13), Jennifer Ha (No. 15), Jennifer Kirby (No. 19) and former top ranked Canadian amateur Megan Osland round out the field.

No. 7 Jessica Wallace earned the opportunity to compete in the final stage as one of the top 15 non-LPGA members on the Symetra Tour but she elected to bypass the event.

A total of 20 full time cards are up for grabs with another 25 partial cards on the line. Any player who finishes the 72 hole tournament but doesn’t earn LPGA status will get Symetra Tour status in 2017.

Blair Bursey and Golf Canada National Team squad member Stuart Macdonald led the way, each picking up six places.
