Wie Dips a Couple of Spots in World Rankings


Michelle Wie dipped two places this week in the Rolex World Rankings for women's golf.
The LPGA Tour won't see its first full-field tournament until the middle of February, but there are weekly changes to the rankings.
Annika Sorenstam, of course, is still the No. 1 player in the world. The next eight players held onto their positions as well: Lorena Ochoa, Karrie Webb, Cristie Kerr, Juli Inkster, Ai Miyazato, Jeong Jang, Paula Creamer and Shiho Ohyama remained in spots 2-9.
Pat Hurst moved up one place to 10th, dropping Se-Ri Pak to 11th. Hee-Won Han inched up one to 12th and Yuri Fudoh received a two-place bump to 13th -- the changes that knocked the 16-year-old Wie to 14th and Mi Hyun Kim to 15th.
Julieta Granada remained 16th and was again followed by Seon-Hwa Lee and Akiko Fukushima. Sherri Steinhauer moved up three places to 19th and Sakura Yokomine advanced from 21st to 20th.
