Position in the Rolex Rankings for American Nelly Korda, an improvement of seven spots after she won the ISPS Handa Australian Women’s Open. Perhaps more important to Korda, 20, with her career-high spot in the world order is that she leapfrogged older sister Jessica, who remained No. 12. Jessica, 25, still can hold bragging rights over Nelly, 20, in one area: career victories on the LPGA. Jessica leads, 5-2.
Number of spots that American J.B. Holmes advanced in the Official World Golf Ranking, to 42nd, after he won the PGA Tour’s Genesis Open on Sunday. It is his highest world ranking since the fall of 2017.
