Lexi Thompson of the USA tees off on the first hole during the final round of the 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship on the Dinah Shore Tournament Course at Mission Hills Country Club on April 6, 2014 in Rancho Mirage, California.

Lexi Thompson had the Rolex Rankings Move of the Week with her win at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Thompson moved up three spots coming in at No. 6.

Lexi Thompson started her day with a birdie and didn’t look back as she fired a bogey-free 68, the low round of the day, to capture a three-shot victory over Michelle Wie at the 2014 Kraft Nabisco Championship.

“Well, it was an amazing day,” Thompson said. “Starting off with a birdie definitely helped. But just hitting that first tee shot obviously a little nervous, but it was definitely what I’ve been practicing for, what I live for, to play under that pressure and to get a major win under my belt, especially the Kraft Nabisco. It’s such a huge honor to win this tournament.”

Other Notable Moves:
- Se Ri Pak moved up nine spots to No. 20 with her play at the first major of the season.
- Michelle Wie moved up 14 spots to move inside the top-25 at No. 24 with her outstanding play.
