Northern Open championship runner-up Scott Larkin (Royal Aberdeen), pictured by Cal Carson Golf Agency, has risen 100 places in this week's R and A World Amateur Golf Rankings. He has gone up to No 272.
James Byrne (Banchory) remains the leading Scottish player at No 19, up one from last week, with Ross Kellett (Colville Park) improving five places to No 70.
The only other Scot in the top 100 is Scottish champion Michael Stewart (Troon Welbeck) at No 73, down six from last week.
After Kris Nicol (Fraserburgh) in 140th place, the fifth highest Scot is a player practically unknown in Scotland! He's Stuart Ballingall from Norwich, a former Scottish boy cap who is now a student at Missouri University where he is doing reasonably well on the US college golf circuit. He finished 17th in a field of 81 at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Classic at South Bend, Indiana earlier this week.
