The victories by both Cameron Davis and Wade Ormsby in events over the weekend have understandably seen their world ranking stocks rise significantly.

Davis, who had been languishing in 1494th place as a result of his disappointing rookie season, until yesterday, jumped a massive 1265 places to 229th courtesy of his narrow but impressive victory at The Australian Golf Club and is now Australia’s 11th highest ranked player and ahead of players including Marcus Fraser, Sam Brazel, Rod Pampling and Geoff Ogilvy.

Ormsby’s win at the Hong Kong Open yesterday moves him from 319th to 118th and now only five Australian players - Jason Day, Marc Leishman, Adam Scott, Cameron Smith and Scott Hend - are ahead of the 37-year-old.

It is by far Ormsby's highest ever ranking, his previous best coming in 2015 when he was 146th.

The South Australian will play this week’s PGA Championship at RACV Royal Pines on the Gold Coast where he finished runner-up behind Greg Chalmers three years ago.

Davis on the other hand will head to Arizona to prepare for the Final Stage of Web.Com Tour Qualifying Tournament which begins on December 7.
