DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Lorena Ochoa was ranked No. 1 in the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings Monday with the same four rivals stacked up behind her.

Yani Tseng, Paula Creamer, Suzann Pettersen and Ji-yai Shin completed the top five just as they did last week. Helen Alfredsson, Cristie Kerr, Angela Stanford, Karrie Webb and Seon-Hwa Lee rounded out the top 10.

Yuri Fudoh, Jeong Jang, Jee Young Lee and Momoko Ueda also held the same spots as last week. Eun-Hee Ji and Maria Hjorth switched places from last week with Ji 15th and Hjorth in 16th.

Hee-Won Han, Morgan Pressel, Karen Stupples and Inbee Park completed the top-20.

While the HSBC LPGA Brasil Cup, an exhibition won by pregnant 39-year-old Scotswoman Catriona Matthew, was this past weekend, the 2009 season doesn't begin in earnest until the SBS Open at Turtle Bay Resort in Oahu, Hawaii, Feb. 12-14.
