Lydia Ko still can't cash an LPGA paycheck, but there's no doubt the Australian amateur is entrenched as one of the world top golfers.
The 16-year-old officially moved to No. 7 in the Rolex World Rankings on Monday, up 12 spots one day after defending her title at the CN Canadian Open.
The top six golfers in the rankings were unchanged, with Korea's Inbee Park maintaining a healthy lead at the top over American Stacy Lewis, who withdrew after the first round in Canada.
Yani Tseng, the No. 1-ranked player entering the year, fell another spot to No. 15.
France's Karine Icher moved into the Top 20 on the strength of her second-place finish in Canada.
