Lexi Thompson made a move in the Rolex Rankings this week moving up four spots to No. 10 with her win at the Lorena Ocoha Invitational Presented by Banamex.

Thompson displayed nerves of steel during the final round of the Lorena Ochoa Invitational as she sank a 5-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to clinch her second LPGA Tour victory this season. The Floridian fired rounds of 72-64-67-69 to claim a one-stroke victory over Stacy Lewis.

It was head-to-head battle between Thompson and Lewis throughout the majority of Sunday’s final round. After both players made the turn at 2-under-par for the day, Lewis dropped three strokes behind Thompson with a bogey at the par-4 12th.
