Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Hyo-Joo Kim moved up three places and into the top 20 in the women's world rankings this week.

Kim improved to 19th.

The LPGA Tour and Ladies European Tour were both off last week, so there was little movement in the rankings.

Stacy Lewis held steady at No. 1 and was followed by Lydia Ko, Inbee Park, Suzann Pettersen, Lexi Thompson and Michelle Wie.

Shanshan Feng and Karrie Webb changed spots with Feng up to seventh and Webb down to eighth. So Yeon Ryu was No. 9 again and was trailed by Cristie Kerr, Anna Nordqvist, Paula Creamer, Angela Stanford, Lizette Salas, Amy Yang, Jessica Korda, Catriona Matthew and Sun Ju Ahn.

Kim's move to No. 19 pushed Na Yeon Choi, Azahara Munoz and Chella Choi down one spot each.
