Not much change as Lewis stays at No. 1

With the LPGA Tour off last week as the women prepared for the U.S. Women's Open at Pinehurst No. 2, there was not much change to this week's world rankings.

The top 11 players stayed where they were, with Stacy Lewis remaining at No. 1. Inbee Park, who comes into this week's U.S. Women's Open as the defending champion, remained at No. 2, followed by Lydia Ko, Suzann Pettersen and Karrie Webb.

At No. 6 is Lexi Thompson, who is followed by Shanshan Feng, So Yeon Ryu, Anna Nordqvist, Cristie Kerr and Michelle Wie to round out the top 11 players.

The first change came at No. 12, where Lizette Salas jumped up one spot over Paula Creamer, who dropped to No. 13. Catriona Matthew, Na Yeon Choi, Jessica Korda, Angela Stanford, Azahara Munoz, Ha Na Jang and Amy Yang rounded out the top 20.

Sun Ju Ahn picked up a victory last week at the Suntory Ladies Open, an event on the LPGA of Japan Tour, which vaulted her three spots to No. 21. Chella Choi, I.K. Kim and Hee Young Park followed Ahn, all dropping one spot.

The biggest jump in the rankings came from In Gee Chun, who moved up 12 spots to No. 37.
