The New Zealand golfer Lydia Ko is set to slip to third on the women's world golf rankings, supplanted by American Stacey Lewis who's won the latest LPGA tour event in Dallas.

Lewis won the North Texas Shootout by six shots, her ninth LPGA tour title but first since the Women's British Open last year.

With the win, Lewis is projected to move up from her current number three in the world rankings to second in the world passing Ko who wasn't playing the tournament.
