Wie Moves Back into Top-10 in Womens Rankings


Michelle Wie returned to the top 10 in the Rolex World Rankings following a one-week hiatus.
Wie, 16, hasn't played in an LPGA Tour event since the Samsung World Championships in October, where she finished 17th. She had slipped one spot to 11th last week.
With the LPGA already in its offseason, there were few changes at the top of the women's rankings.
Annika Sorenstam, of course, remained No. 1 and was again followed by Player of the Year Lorena Ochoa, Karrie Webb, Cristie Kerr, Juli Inkster, Ai Miyazato, Paula Creamer, Jeong Jang and Shiho Ohyama.
Wie knocked Se-Ri Pak to 11th, where she was trailed by Pat Hurst at 12th. Hee-Won Han moved up a spot to 13th, bumping Yuri Fudoh to 14th, while Mi Hyun Kim and Julieta Granada held on to the next two positions.
Natalie Gulbis, Akiko Fukushima and Sakura Yokomine moved up one slot apiece to positions 17-19, dropping Seon-Hwa Lee to 20th.
