Ai Miyazato had the Rolex Rankings Move of the Week moving up 67 spots to No. 90 with her outstanding play at the Kia Classic. With her third place finish, former World No. 1 Ai Miyazato had her best finish in an LPGA event since a runner up finish at the 2013 JTBC Founders Cup. Her last top-10 also came that year, this time at the 2013 Lotte Championship.
“I haven’t finished Top-10 since, I don’t know, maybe a couple years ago, and finally I did it,” Miyazato said after the final round. “So I’m really satisfied what I did, and definitely gained my confidence.”
