It had been 59 weeks but Stacy Lewis is once again the top rated women’s golfer in the world.

The former Arkansas Razorback ran away from the field at the ShopRite LPGA Classic on Sunday to pick up her second win of the season. Lewis’ 16-under was six strokes better than the field, including Christina Kim who finished alone in second at 10-under.

Lewis has nine top-10 finishes already this season and moves past Inbee Park for the top spot in the world. Park finished tied for 8th at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club in Galloway, N.J.

Lewis and Park are both expected to be in Northwest Arkansas at the end of the June for Walmart NWA Championship presented by P&G.
