The Sports NetworkJuly 29, 2013 

Karrie Webb won for the second time this season on the Ladies European Tour on Sunday and that helped her improve to No. 6 this week in the latest women's world rankings.

Webb, who had been No. 7 last week, now has three victories on the season, including one on the LPGA Tour.

Ahead of her, the top five in the rankings remained the same with Inbee Park followed by Stacy Lewis, Suzann Pettersen, Na Yeon Choi and So Yeon Ryu.

Webb's move pushed Shanshan Feng down a spot to seventh. Jiyai Shin held steady at No. 8 and was again trailed by I.K. Kim, Catriona Matthew and Paula Creamer.

Ai Miyazato and Cristie Kerr both inched up one to 12th and 13th, respectively, and their moves pushed former No. 1 Yani Tseng down two places to 14th.

Angela Stanford and Mika Miyazato exchanged places with Stanford inching up one to 15th, which bumped Miyazato down to 16th. Amateur Lydia Ko remained 17th and was followed by Beatriz Recari and Ariya Jutanugarn, who stayed put at 18 and 19.

Lizette Salas inched up one to return to the top 20 as last week's No. 20 Amy Yang dropped a pair to 22nd this week.
