Karrie Webb of Australia poses with the JTBC LPGA Founders Cup trophy after winning in the final round at Wildfire Golf Club on March 23, 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Karrie Webb had the Rolex Rankings Move of the Week with her win at the JTBC Founders Cup. Webb moved up one spot but it put her in the No. 5 spot.

The LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame member fired a 9-under 63 in Sunday’s final round to capture a one-shot victory at the JTBC Founders Cup. Webb came from six shots back to defeat third-round leader Lydia Ko and four other players who finished at 18-under-par, including defending champion Stacy Lewis. This is Webb’s 41st career LPGA Tour victory, which moved her into a tie for 10th on the LPGA’s all-time win list with Founder Babe Zaharias.

“I didn’t expect to be sitting here at the start of the day,” Webb said at her post-victory press conference. “Even actually when I finished the day I didn’t expect to be sitting here. So I feel a little bit lucky, I guess, to be sitting here. But it doesn’t make it feel any less special.

Other Notable Moves:
- Cristie Kerr moved up two spots to No. 12. She's creating more distance between herself and Angela Stanford to secure her spot for the U.S. Team at the International Crown.
- Amy Yang moved up three spots to No. 14. Yang has a chance to push past I.K. Kim for the fourth spot on the South Korea Team for the International Crown.
