Stacy Lewis might have won the LPGA’s Walmart NW Arkansas Championship on Sunday, but it was also a good week for Lydia Ko.
Not only did Ko tie for second at Pinnacle Country Club, she also moves to second in the Rolex Rankings. Inbee Park, who finished T-15 in Rogers, Ark., drops to third while Lewis remains No. 1.
Michelle Wie continued to play well coming off of her U.S. Women’s Open victory at Pinehurst, finishing T-8 in Arkansas and moving from seventh to sixth in the world.
So Yeon Ryu, who was solo fifth in Arkansas, and Cristie Kerr, who was T-2, also improved their position in the top 10 – Ryu moving to eighth and Kerr to 10th.
