World Women's Golf ranking

Wie's second title is worth Top 10 ranking

Daytona Beach, Fla. -- Michelle Wie's second LPGA championship improved her world women's golf ranking to No. 7, the list released Monday showed.

Wie won the Canadian Women's Open by three strokes over Lee Jee-young, Kristy McPherson, Suzann Pettersen and Jiyai Shin and moved up from her previous No. 12 ranking.

Wie's move into the Top 10 shook up the bottom part of that group but the top six places were unchanged from last week.

Ai Miyazato is still No. 1 ahead of Cristie Kerr, while Pettersen is third and Shin fourth. Yani Tseng is ranked No. 5 with Choi Na-yeon in sixth.

Miyazato back at women's golf No. 1

Daytona Beach, Fla. -- Ai Miyazato's victory at the LPGA's Safeway Classic in Oregon returned her to No. 1 in the world women's golf rankings.

Miyazato won the tournament -- her fifth LPGA title of the year -- by two strokes over Choi No-yeon and Cristie Kerr with Kim Song-hee and Suzann Pettersen tied for fourth another stroke back. Miyazato turned in an even-par 72 Sunday and finished the 54-hole tournament at 11-under 205.

Her move to the top of the rankings marks the third time Miyazato, who leads the LPGA money list and the standings for 2010 Player of the Year, has taken over the No. 1 ranking. Her two previous visits each lasted just one week, however.
