Eason, Strom make jumps in WAGR

Greg Eason rises to No. 4 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking after topping the field at the 2014 John Hayt Collegiate Invitational (shown here during last year's U.S. Amateur).

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 while playing for Central Florida and Strom winning the Spanish Ladies Amateur Championship.

Eason's 71-65-69—205 week put him three shots clear of UAB's Sam Love and lifted UCF to second place behind Oklahoma State.

It also lifted Eason five spots to fourth in the WAGR.

Strom, meanwhile, jumped to No. 16 as she climbed eight spots in the rankings after defeating Annabel Dimmock 2 & 1 in the final in Spain. Strom also finished third at December's Junior Orange Bowl International Championship.

The men's top three remains Patrick Rodgers, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Cory Whitsett.

Minjee Lee continues to lead the women's rankings, with Annie Park passing Alison Lee this week to take over second place.
