Nordqvist up to No. 7 in world rankings

Philadelphia, PA ( - Anna Nordqvist earned a 1-shot victory at last week's ShopRite LPGA Classic, pushing the Swede up to No. 7 in the world rankings.

The win was Nordqvist's first of the season and fifth of her career. She improved seven spots from 14 to seven.

Park was again followed by Stacy Lewis, Hyo-Joo Kim, Shanshan Feng and So Yeon Ryu. With Nordqvist moving up to seven, Brittany Lincicome, Cristie Kerr, Suzann Pettersen and Lexi Thompson all fell one.

Mirim Lee jumped one to 12, while Michelle Wie and Amy Yang each fell a pair to 13 and 14. Sei Young Kim and Karrie Webb are once again 15 and 16.

Na Yeon Choi and Azahara Munoz swapped spots, with Choi up to 17, while In Gee Chun and Minjee Lee rounded out the top-20 for another week.
