Inbee Park maintained the top spot and was followed again by Suzann Pettersen and Stacy Lewis. So Yeon Ryu finished third behind Thompson and Lewis in Mexico and inched up one to fourth, which bumped Lydia Ko back to No. 5.

Na Yeon Choi held steady in sixth and was trailed again by Shanshan Feng, Karrie Webb and I.K. Kim.
