Graham DeLaet picked up six places in the world rankings after finishing tied for seventh at the Waste Management Open, his first top 10 result of the new PGA Tour season and first top 10 Tour result since last year's RBC Canadian Open. His 8.82 world ranking points was the most since the BMW Championship. The result is also a positive sign that the health issues which forced him to withdraw from two three events late last year are behind him. DeLaet moved up to 59th in the world, just two off his 2014 season ending ranking. He needs to be in the top 50 in the week before the Masters in order to get an invitation to Augusta.

Brooke Henderson picked up her first win as a pro last week at a SunCoast Series event in Florida. While the mini-tour victory will not impact her world ranking, she has a chance to pick up points this week after qualifying for her first LPGA tournament of the year in the Bahamas.

On the amateur side, Austin Connelly won the Jones Cup Invitational, rallying from a seven stroke deficit to claim victory over Kyle Jones in a playoff. He becomes the second straight Canadian to win the prestigious amateur tournament, coming a year after he lost to fellow Team Canada member Corey Conners in a playoff. It's also his first win since he was named a member of Team Canada. The victory moves him up to No. 4 in the world and with the win, he earns an exemption into the PGA's McGladrey Classic, which takes place in November.

Defending Jones Cup champion Conners finished tied for 14th while fellow Team Canada member Adam Svensson finished tied for eighth.

Brian Jung of Coquitlam, B.C., a junior at Oregon State University, moved into the top 20, climbing 142 places in the rankings to No. 17.

With Augusta James confirming her decision to play professionally, Maddie Szeryk - who also holds dual citizenship - takes over the No. 1 ranking in Canada.
