When Ashlan Ramsey steps to the first tee at the Cougar Classic at Yeamans Hall Club in Charleston, S.C. on Sept. 8 for the first competitive round in Clemson women's golf history, she'll do so as the No. 1-ranked amateur in the world.
Coming off a summer in which she won nearly everything in sight, and then reached the match-play portion of the U.S. Amateur, the incoming Clemson freshman ascended to the world's No. 1 position on Tuesday.
The Milledgeville, Ga. native, whose sister Taylor will also be a member of Clemson's inaugural team, has compiled 5,750 points to take the lead from New Zealand's Lydia Ko, who has 5,300. The third-ranked player in the world has 3,900 points.
