Georgia Tech Men Hold on to Top Spot in the Sixth Edition of Mastercard Collegiate Golf Rankings

PRINCETON, N.J. – The Georgia Tech men and the University of Arizona women are the top-ranked teams in the sixth edition of the MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings. The MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings, which are administered by the College Golf Foundation and compiled by Golfstat in cooperation with the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) and National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA), are determined by a computerized system based strictly on performance during the 1999-2000 collegiate golf season.

The MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings, the official rankings of the Rolex Collegiate Tour, will be released a total of 19 times throughout the 1999-2000 college golf season. The next date for release of the MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings will be Wednesday, March 15, 2000.

Georgia Tech, which has won three Rolex Collegiate Tour events so far this season, is the top-ranked men’s team in the MasterCard Rankings for the second consecutive week. The Yellow Jackets, which won the Puerto Rico Golf Classic at Rio Mar last week, also won the Taylor Made/Waikoloa Intercollegiate last month and the Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic during the fall. Northwestern, which won the team title at the Ping/Golfweek Preview during the fall, is ranked second. Clemson, which held the top spot in the MasterCard Rankings the entire fall, is ranked third. Rounding out the top five are Arizona State, ranked No. 4, and Georgia, ranked No. 5.

Luke Donald of Northwestern, who was ranked No. 1 throughout the entire fall campaign, is the top-ranked men’s individual for the first time this spring. Donald, who won the Puerto Rico Golf Classic at Rio Mar last week, shares the Rolex Collegiate Tour lead with three other individuals who have won three tournaments so far this season. Matt Kuchar of Georgia Tech, who was named the February Rolex College Golfer of the Month, is ranked second. Rounding out the top five individuals are Lucas Glover of Clemson, ranked No. 3, Bryce Molder of Georgia Tech, ranked No. 4, and Jess Daley of Northwestern, ranked No. 5.

The CGF, a non-profit organization founded in the spring of 1995 with the corporate support of Rolex Watch U.S.A., and also sustained by an alliance with MasterCard International, is dedicated to the growth and promotion of men’s and women’s collegiate golf.
