With the LPGA having the week off in preparation for the fifth major of the season, the Evian Championship, there were minor movements in this week's women's world rankings.

The top six golfers overall stayed the same, with Inbee Park again being followed by Stacy Lewis, Suzann Pettersen, Na Yeon Choi, So Yeon Ryu and Karrie Webb.

Catriona Matthew made the biggest climb in the top 20 as she moved up two spots to seventh, which caused Lydia Ko and Shanshan Feng to each drop a spot to eighth and ninth.

I.K. Kim remained in 10th and was followed by Paula Creamer. Cristie Kerr and Jiyai Shin swapped places, with Kerr moving up to 12th and Shin falling to 13th.

Ai Miyazato and Lizette Salas held firm in 14th and 15th, while Angela Stanford and Hee Young Park each moved up a place to 16th and 17th, respectively.

Those movements caused former world No. 1 Yani Tseng to drop a pair of spots to 18th. Mika Miyazato stayed put at 19th ahead of Beatriz Recari, who moved up a place to round out the top 20.
