Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - So Yeon Ryu won for the third time on the LPGA Tour on Sunday and that helped her move to No. 5 in the world rankings.

Ryu jumped four spots with her record-setting victory. She matched the tournament-record score of 265, while her total of 23-under was the lowest in relation to par in tournament history.

Ahead of Ryu, the top four were unchanged. Stacy Lewis was trailed by Inbee Park, Lydia Ko and Suzann Pettersen, who will defend her title in Portland this week.

Ryu's move to No. 5 pushed Michelle Wie, Lexi Thompson, Shanshan Feng and Karrie Webb down to Nos. 6-9. Anna Nordqvist and Cristie Kerr held steady in 10th and 11th.

Lizette Salas improved a pair to 12th, while Angela Stanford slipped a notch to 13th. Azahara Munoz, who finished fourth behind Ryu, climbed a pair to No. 14, while runner-up Na Yeon Choi jumped five to No. 15.

Paula Creamer slid three to 16th, while Amy Yang tumbled two places to 17th. Jessica Korda, Sun Ju Ahn and Catriona Matthew were down one spot each and ranked 18th, 19th and 20th this week.
