Ariya Jutanugarn is now 23rd in the world rankings following her third-placed finish at the Lotte Championship on Sunday.
In her third LPGA event since turning pro earlier this year, the 17-year-old Thai shot a 273 in Hawaii, four strokes behind champion Suzann Pettersen. With the result, Ariya moved up 12 places from 35th in the world.
She received US$328,643 (about 9.9 million baht) in prize money from the three events. However the earnings are not counted on the LPGA money list because she is not a tour member.
