Karrie Webb won the Volvik RACV Ladies
Masters for the eighth time on Sunday and that helped her jump five spots to
No. 12 in this week’s women’s world rankings.

Webb’s eighth win tied her with Sam Snead, who won the Greater Greensboro Open
eight times over four decades.

Yani Tseng remains atop the rankings and was again followed by Na Yeon Choi,
Stacy Lewis, Inbee Park, Shanshan Feng, Suzann Pettersen, So Yeon Ryu, Jiyai
Shin, Ai Miyazato, Mika Miyazato and Cristie Kerr.

Webb’s move to 12th pushed Paula Creamer, Catriona Matthew, Sun Ju Ahn,
Azahara Munoz and Amy Yang down one place apiece.

Brittany Lincicome held steady on No. 18 and was trailed by Angela Stanford
and Chie Arimura.
