    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Nicholas Gabrelcik won the individual title at the Gator Invitational, his ninth career collegiate victory, as he strengthened his record and stayed at No. 3 in the PGA TOUR University Ranking. The North Florida senior finished the tournament 13-under, with three sub-70 rounds. Last week, Gabrelcik also finished T8 at the Puerto Rico Classic, and he has a PGA TOUR University-leading 16 top-10s in 20 starts on his record.

    Michael Thorbjornsen (No. 1), Christo Lamprecht (No. 2), William Moll (No. 4) and Austin Greaser (No. 5) round out the top five players in this week’s ranking.

    Oklahoma’s Ben Lorenz jumped from No. 13 to No. 9 in the PGA TOUR University Ranking after a T3 finish at the Puerto Rico Classic. The Sooner senior finished the weekend 14-under, including a final round 7-under 65. After starting the round in 15th, Lorenz moved 12 spots up the leaderboard after carding five birdies and an eagle all while not recording a bogey. Georgia senior Ben van Wyk moved into the top-30 after finishing T8 in Puerto Rico. The South African moved from No. 37 to No. 30 in this week’s ranking.

    University of New Mexico senior Bastien Amat moved inside the top 30 of the ranking after winning the individual title at the John Burns Intercollegiate. The Frenchman fired a final round 8-under 64 and comfortably won by five strokes. Amat moved from No. 46 to No. 28 in this week’s ranking.

    Five of the top-25 players head to the Southern Highlands Collegiate, running Saturday through Tuesday (Feb. 24-27). Dylan Menante (No. 7), Gustav Frimodt (No. 13), John Marshall Butler (No. 21), Greaser and Lorenz are scheduled to compete at Southern Highlands Golf Club in Las Vegas.
