Rolex Rankings Move of the Week: Maria Hernandez

With the LPGA Tour on a three week hiatus, several players decided to take their games overseas to play on the Ladies European Tour (LET) and improve their positions on the Rolex Rankings. Rookie Maria Hernandez made the journey to her home country of Spain to record a tie for fifth place at the Open de Espana Feminino and improve 10 spots in the Rolex Rankings to No. 112.

Hernandez is currently fourth place in the Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year Race trailing current leader Azahara Munoz by

423 points. Hernandez's best finish on the LPGA tour is a tie for 14th at the RICOH Women's British Open.

Laura Davies also made a significant move in the Rolex Rankings after notching her fourth LET victory this season at the Open de Espana Feminino. Davies jumped eight spots to move her into the top-50 of the Rolex Rankings at No. 44.


With a wire-to-wire victory at the KLPGA Championship Jiyai Shin took over the second spot in the Rolex Rankings, moving Cristie Kerr down to third. The win was Shin's 20th KLPGA victory and qualified her for induction into the tour's hall of fame. Ai Miyazato maintained the top spot in the Rolex Rankings for the fourth consecutive week.
