David Hearn and Brad Fritsch got a bit of a boost in the world rankings following their performance at the World Cup of Golf in Australia. Hearn, from Brantford, Ont., finished tied for 8th in the individual portion of the event which was good for five world ranking points and a nine place jump in the world rankings. Fritsch, from Ottawa, also realized a nine place jump after finishing in a tie for 25th.

Toronto's Rebecca Lee-Bentham picked up nine spots in the world rankings to a career-best 204 after finishing tied for 43rd at the season ending LPGA event in Florida. Lee-Bentham recorded a career-low round of 65 and her finish enabled her to move into the top 80 on the season-ending money list which maintains her full status into next season.
