UNITED States-based national rep Sam Lee gained four places in the latest world amateur golf rankings released yesterday.

Lee, who is a student at the Oklahoma State University, is ranked 790.

Suva golfer Olaf Allen Junior climbed 556 places to 1680.

Allen Jr is Fiji's biggest mover after taking out the Srixon Cleveland Champion versus Champion tournament at the Pacific Harbour Golf Club earlier this month.

The two-day 54--hole tournament served as a world ranking event.

Airports Fiji Limited fireman Anuresh Chandra dropped three spots to 2755; he did not participate in the CVC for personal reasons.

Lautoka Central Primary School teacher Roneel Prakash gained 267 spots to be placed 3298.

Nadi Muslim College student Baarroon Hussain is ranked 4534 while Amitesh Chandra is ranked 4782.

The second trials for players vying for a spot in the Fiji team for the 2014 World Cup in Japan will be held at the Nadi Airport Golf Club from February 22 to February 23.
