    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – After starting the season No. 70 in the PGA TOUR University Ranking, Vanderbilt’s William Moll has broken into the top 20 and is No. 15 this week after posting his fourth consecutive top-10.

    Moll opened the season with a win at The Frederica Cup in September to gain 32 places, and he has improved another 25 in the last five weeks with finishes of T2, T2, T3 and T6 last week at the SEC Championship. He also posted a 2-0-1 record in match play as the Commodores advanced to the championship match for the third consecutive season.

Yuxin Lin is No. 11 this week and Ricky Castillo improved two spots to No. 12 after finishing T8 in stroke play at SECs. Georgia Tech won the ACC Championship last week, and the Yellow Jackets have three players in the top 30: Ross Steelman (No. 7), Connor Howe (No. 25) and Bartley Forrester (No. 27).

    Texas Tech’s Ludvig Aberg continues to top the PGA TOUR University Ranking, while Illinois’ Adrien Dumont De Chassart captured his fourth collegiate title last week at the Fighting Illini Spring Collegiate and improved one spot to No. 4. North Carolina’s Austin Greaser (No. 3) and Texas A&M’s Sam Bennett (No. 5) round out the top five.
