Lydia Ko of New Zealand plays a shot on the third hole during the final round of the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G at Pinnacle Country Club on June 29, 2014 in Rogers, Arkansas.

Lydia Ko made a move in the Rolex Rankings this week moving up one spot moving one spot closer to Stacy Lewis coming in at No. 2 with her tie for second at the 2014 Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G.

Ko (-11) finished one stroke behind eventually champion Stacy Lewis but even coming off 18 and heading to the clubhouse tied for the lead she knew her chances weren’t great. At that point, Lewis and Cristie Kerr had two holes to play.

“If I get the opportunity to hopefully go in the playoff that’s great because then, you know, maybe I can grind something out.” Ko said before Lewis birdied the final hole. “But the last couple holes there you can make birdies like I did the last two, they’re definitely birdiable, especially with the tee forward on 18. I think the girls that are tied right now that are behind will definitely get on in two, which means it could be birdies.”

Other Notable Moves:
Cristie Kerr moved up one spot coming in at No. 10 with her tie for second at the 2014 Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G.
- Anglea Stanford moved up three spots to No. 14 with her tie for second at the 2014 Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G.
