Lydia Ko of New Zealand hits the fairway on 6 during the Final Round of the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic at the Lake Merced Golf Club in San Francisco, California.

Lydia Ko had the Rolex Rankings Move of the Week with her win at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. Ko moved up two spots coming in at No. 2.

Ko capped off a memorable week in perhaps the only way that seemed fitting – with a win. Ko birdied the 18th hole to shoot a 3-under 69 in Sunday’s final round and defeat Rolex Rankings No. 3 Stacy Lewis by a stroke at the inaugural Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. It marked Ko’s third LPGA victory and her first as a member of the Tour. It also came in the same week that the New Zealander turned 17 and was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World.

Other Notable Moves:
- Cristie Kerr moved up one spots breaking into the top-10 coming in at No. 10 with her play at Swinging Skirts.
- Jenny Shin moved up 18 spots to move inside the top-50 at No. 40 with her outstanding play.
