Lydia Ko of New Zealand remains atop the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings for the 65th consecutive week while Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn holds the second ranking for the 25th straight week.

The 19-year-old sensation and 14-time LPGA Tour winner has spent the last 175 weeks in the top 10. Ko recently discussed her desire to see the pay gap between men and women in golf to close.

"Hopefully one day it will be equal" she told AFP.com. "One of our roles is to obviously play great golf, but to also make a difference."

South Korea's Ingee Chun holds the No. 3 ranking while China's Shanshan Feng and Lexi Thompson are fourth and fifth respectively. South Korea's Sei Young Kim and Ha-Na Jang, Canada's Brooke Henderson, South Korea's So Yeon Ryu and Sung Hyun Park round out the top 10.

There were no changes among the top 36 players in the rankings. Japan's Ritsuko leapfrogged South Korea's Jenny Shin into 37th.
