    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Georgia’s Ben Van Wyk and Arizona State’s Ryggs Johnston each earned runner-up finishes and made their first appearances inside the top 25 in this week’s PGA TOUR University Ranking. Van Wyk’s second-place finish at the Calusa Cup marks his second consecutive top-five finish to move to No. 24 in the ranking. Johnston moved eight spots up to No. 25 after a solo second-place finish at the Thunderbird Collegiate. Arizona State claimed the team victory for the second year in a row as five Sun Devils finished inside the top-10.

    For the first time this spring, Matthew Riedel (Vanderbilt)took over the No. 3 position in the ranking to move past North Florida’s Nicholas Gabrelcik. Gabrelcik moved down to No. 4 after a 15th-place finish at the Lewis Chitengwa Memorial. He has not finished outside the top-20 in a collegiate event since the Windon Memorial in 2022. The rest of the top five remains unchanged, with Michael Thorbjornsen (Stanford) at No. 1, Christo Lamprecht (Georgia Tech) at No. 2 and Austin Greaser (North Carolina) at No. 5.

    Jack Lundin (Missouri) improved his ranking for the fourth straight week with an individual title at the Mizzou Tiger Intercollegiate. Lundin carded three straight rounds under-par en route to his second straight win and fifth of his career. He has finished inside the top five in all five tournament appearances of the spring. Lundin began the collegiate season at No. 66 in the ranking and is now inside the top 25 at No. 20.

    Making their first Masters appearances last weekend were Neal Shipley (Ohio State), Christo Lamprecht (Georgia Tech) and Santiago De la Fuente (Houston). Shipley earned low amateur honors and was the only amateur to make the cut after carding an impressive 1-under 71 in the first round. Lamprecht remains at No. 2 in the ranking, De la Fuente at No. 27 and Shipley improved to No. 50.
