Stephen Leaney’s tie for second place at the Johnnie Walker Classic at the weekend has earned him a massive jump in the world ranking where he now stands in 49th place following the release of the latest list today.
Leaney joins five other Australians in the top sixty four as of today’s date, thus ensuring himself a place in the Accenture Match Play next week in Carlsbad. Andre Stoltz was also a big mover to 83rd place following his tie with Leaney.
Robert Allenby, Stuart Appleby, Craig Parry, Peter Lonard, Adam Scott and Leaney are eligible for a place in the Accenture field with new Zealander Michael Campbell also lining up. Phil Tataurangi who slipped to 66th will need to rely on withdrawals.
While tentatively finalised based on today’s ranking, the field could alter with withdrawals.
