Australia had a new number one women's golfer for the first time in around two decades on Tuesday after Minjee Lee leapfrogged Karrie Webb in the latest world rankings to end the seven-times major champion's long reign at the top. Teenager Lee, who won her first LPGA Tour event at the Kingsmill Championship in May, jumped from 17th to 16th in the rankings after finishing tied for sixth at the Arkansas Championship over the weekend. Webb finished tied for 52nd in Rogers, Arkansas, to drop from 16th to 18th and give up her status as the leading Australian, which she had held since the women's rankings were first instituted in 2006.
