Beatriz Recari made the biggest move in the Rolex Rankings on the strength of her victory at the Marathon Classic on Sunday, vaulting up eight spots to No. 18 in the world Monday.
Inbee Park continues to enjoy a comfortable cushion as the world's No. 1 player. Despite finishing 33rd in Ohio, she holds a commanding lead at 12.96 points, well ahead of American Stacy Lewis (8.07), who finished in a tie for 19th Sunday. Suzann Pettersen, Na Yeon Ryu and Shanshan Feng round out the top five.
Yani Tseng, the top-ranked player in the world entering the season, continued her stunning freefall. By missing the cut in Ohio, Tseng plummeted another two spots in the rankings and is now out of the top 10 at No. 12.
American Paul Creamer finished one shot behind Recari in Ohio and moved up three spots to No. 11.
