Lincicome Up 10 Spots in World Ranking

RSS

Brittany Lincicome claimed her second LPGA Tour win Sunday at the Ginn Open and jumped 10 spots to 12th in the latest Rolex Rankings for women's golf.
 
Despite withdrawing from the event, Annika Sorenstam held on to a slim lead atop the rankings.
 
Lorena Ochoa moved within 0.19 average points of Sorenstam and likely will take over the top spot in the near future as Sorenstam is out for at least a month with a back injury.
 
The next four players -- Karrie Webb, Morgan Pressel, Cristie Kerr and Paula Creamer -- remained third through sixth this week. Juli Inkster and Ai Miyazato exchanged places from last week with Inkster up to seventh.
 
Jeong Jang held steady at nine and was again followed by Shiho Oyama and Se Ri Pak. Lincicome was up to 12th, while Pat Hurst remained in 13th.
 
Stacy Prammanasudh tumbled two places to No. 14, Hee-Won Han was up two to 15th and Mi Hyun Kim dipped a notch to 16. Jee Young Lee tumbled three spots to 17th.
 
Julieta Granada was down two positions to 18, while Yuri Fudoh and Michelle Wie slipped one apiece to 19th and 20th respectively. Suzann Pettersen dipped one place out of the top 20 to 21st.
