New Zealand's Lydia Ko has moved up one spot in the women's world golf rankings after a top-20 finish in Thailand on Sunday.

The 15-year-old, who was playing in Thailand after winning the New Zealand Women's Open and finishing third at the Australian Open in consecutive weeks, had another fine week with a 14th placing at the Siam Country Club in Chonburi.

The world's top amateur now sits in 25th in the rankings. Taiwan's Yani Tseng remains the No 1-ranked player in the world.
