New Zealand's Lydia Ko remains atop the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings as the world's number one player for the 63rd consecutive week.

Ko, 19, trails only Mexico's Lorena Ochoa (158 weeks), Taiwan's Yani Tseng (109 weeks) and South Korea's Inbee Park (92 weeks) for the longest reign atop the rankings.

Ko has been ranked No. 1 for a total of 82 weeks in her career and has not slipped below No. 3 in the world since April 2014.

Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn trails Ko (584.9684 points) by 125.452 points and holds the No. 2 ranking. South Korea's In Gee Chun, China's Shanshan Feng and Lexi Thompson round out the top five.

The lone change in the top 50 rankings saw South Korea's Seung Hyun Lee leapfrog fellow countryman Chella Choi into 48th.
