Hawaii's Michelle Wie moved up to 6th place in the Rolex Rankings despite an 8th place finish at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship.

Wie was the leader going into Sunday's final round with a 10-under-par for the tournament.

After two straight days of shooting a 5-under-par 66, Wie shot a 2-over-par 73 on Sunday with three bogeys and only one birdie.  Her only other bogey of the tournament came in Round 2.

American Stacy Lewis, ranked No.1 in the world by Rolex, won the tournament with a 12-under-par.  She went to the University of Arkansas which is just minutes from Pinnacle Country Club.

Lewis has now overtaken Wie as the 2014 money leader with $1,881,227.  Wie made $1,627,653 so far this year.
