Cheyenne Woods’ first professional victory Sunday at the Australian Ladies Masters not only moved her to the top of the Ladies European Tour’s Order of Merit, it also sparked a big climb in the Rolex Rankings.
Woods, 23, improved 209 spots to 154th in the world, the highest ranking of her career. Naturally, she still has a ways to go to equal her uncle, Tiger Woods, the World No. 1 men’s player.
With only one ranked event this past week, the top 16 remained the same as Inbee Park still holds the top spot at 9.93, 0.27 points ahead of second-place Suzann Pettersen.
