Lydia Ko has returned to her career-high spot of No 2 in the women's golf rankings.

Following her tie for second place at the Arkansas Championship yesterday, the 17-year-old has leapfrogged Inbee Park in the standings, while American Stacy Lewis, who won the Arkansas event by one stroke, has retained her place at the top of the rankings.

Ko's strong finish in Arkansas helped her move from sixth to third on the LPGA's Race to the CME Globe standings, behind US Women's Open champion Michelle Wie and Lewis.
