Rolex Ranking Mover of the Week:
Had to look long and hard for this one, but Anne-Lise Caudal who was victorious on the Ladies European Tour this past week, moved from #221 to #144 by winning the German Open. She defeated Laura Davies in a playoff.
Karine Icher had missed the cut in four of the first 5 tournaments this year. She has now bounced back with 2 consecutive top tens.
So Yeon Ryu has played in thirteen LPGA tournaments in her career. Not only has she not missed a cut, but she has finished in the top twelve in seven of those events, as well.
UPDATE: 5/30/12 - As it turns out Jiyai Shin is also injured. She just had surgery on her hand.
