Angela Stanford had the Rolex Rankings Move of the Week with her win at the HSBC Women's Champions 2012 moving three spots to No. 14. Stanford earned her fifth-career LPGA title. The 34-year-old sank a three-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole to earn the distinction of the 2012 “Champion of Champions” title. Stanford outlasted Shanshan Feng, who three-putted the first playoff hole, Na Yeon Choi, who missed a four-footer for par on the second playoff hole, and Jenny Shin, who bogeyed the final playoff hole to post the the second win by an American in the first three events of the LPGA season for the first time since 2007.
Second-year LPGA player Jenny Shin wasn’t able to join the ranks of the Rolex First-Time Winners, but she was able to improve her consecutive top-10 streak to three tournaments. Shin moved up 34 spots to No. 64
