Pressel Makes Major Move After Major Win


Morgan Pressel claimed her first LPGA Tour win Sunday, and her first major title, as she won the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
The big win helped Pressel soar 13 places to fourth in the latest Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings.
Annika Sorenstam remained atop the rankings, but her lead over No. 2 Lorena Ochoa slipped to just 0.30 average points, down from 0.75 last week.
Karrie Webb tied for 20th in her title defense at the Kraft, and held steady at No. 3 in the rankings where she was followed by Pressel.
The following seven players -- Cristie Kerr, Paula Creamer, Ai Miyazato, Juli Inkster, Jeong Jang, Shiho Oyama and Se Ri Pak -- all dipped one place to rank fifth through 11th respectively.
Stacy Prammanasudh climbed to two places after sharing fifth behind Pressel. Prammanasudh was up to 12th, while Pat Hurst fell two places to 13. Jee Young Lee was also up two to 14, while Mi Hyun Kim dipped a pair to No. 15.
Julieta Granada slipped a notch to 16, while Hee-Won Han tumbled five places to 17th this week. Yuri Fudoh and Michelle Wie flip-flopped positions from last week with Fudoh up to 18th.
Suzann Pettersen, who collapsed late on the back nine Sunday to drop behind Pressel, jumped 12 slots to 20th this week. Seon-Hwa Lee was 20th last week, but dropped four places to 24th in the new rankings.
