Veronica Felibert of Venezuela hits a tee shot on the 7th hole during the second round of the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Arkansas.

Veronica Felibert had the Rolex Rankings Move of the Week moving up 470 spots to No. 253. Prior to this week’s Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G, Veronica Felibert had never shot a round in the 60’s on the LPGA Tour and only made one cut in five starts. To many people’s surprise, Felibert crawled her way to the top of the leaderboard during the first round with a 6-under-par 65 and followed it up on Saturday with a 5-under-par 66 to head into Sunday with the lead.

Ai Miyazato captured her second victory of the 2012 LPGA season, making birdie on the 18th hole to take home the title at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G. Miyazato fired a 6-under 65 to give her a one-shot victory over fellow Japan native Mika Miyazato and 2012 Sybase Match Play champion Azahara Munoz. Miyazato move up three spots to No. 3 in the Rolex Rankings.
