It’s been quite a week for Patrick Rodgers. First, he announced that he would forgo his senior season at Stanford and turn pro after the NCAA Championships. Now, he leads the prestigious Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters.
Greg Eason and Linnea Strom made the most significant jumps of the week in the latest World Amateur Golf Ranking, Eason winning the John Hayt Collegiate Invitational and Strom winning the Spanish Ladies Amateur.
The sophomore posted an opening 6-under 66, then followed with rounds of 76-74 for an even-par 216 total and a five-shot victory at the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational in Honolulu. It was her first college title.
