Little Movement in Womens World Rankings


Following her win at the Honda LPGA Thailand over the weekend, Hee-Won Han moved up one place to No. 14 in the Rolex World Rankings.
Receiving bigger bumps were the four players who finished directly behind Han at the first LPGA Tour event in Thailand.
Diana D'Alessio, the runner-up, climbed 28 places to 66th in the latest rankings. Candie Kung moved up four spots to 40th, Gloria Park advanced three spaces to 37th and Nicole Castrale moved up 10 places to 68th after tying for third place.
Annika Sorenstam, of course, remained the top-ranked player, and was again followed by Lorena Ochoa, Karrie Webb, Cristie Kerr and Juli Inkster to round out the top 5.
Ai Miyazato moved up a spot to sixth, bumping Paula Creamer to seventh, while Jeong Jang, Shiho Ohyama, Michelle Wie and Pat Hurst held onto spots 8-11.
Yuri Fudoh slipped into 12th, knocking Mi Hyun Kim to 13th, and Han replaced Se-Ri Pak in 14th. Pak was followed by Seon-Hwa Lee, Sophie Gustafson, Natalie Gulbis, Jee Young Lee and Morgan Pressel to finish the top 20.
