Garrett Rank made the biggest move among the Top 10, picking up four places in the world rankings to further solidify his position as the No. 1 ranked amateur in Canada for 2017.

As a full-time NHL referee, Rank’s availability to play golf is limited to the summer months but the former Golf Canada National Squad member made the most of opportunities, securing the top Canadian ranking back in June and spending just six week’s outside of the top 100 in the world rankings.

The Elmira, Ont., native came up short in his quest to become the first four-time winner of the Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur title, losing in a playoff. He posted a top five result at the Porter Cup, finished tied for 11th at the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship and added a top 15 result at the Monroe Invitational.

Rank was also named to the Global Golf Post First Team Men’s Mid-Amateur squad.

National Team members Hugo Bernard and Chris Crisologo along with Matt Williams and Blair Bursey also made positive gains in the rankings this past week.

Biggest move: James Song gained 853 spots in the world rankings after finishing in a tie for 19th at the AJGA Rolex Tournament of Champions.
