It’s only been a little over a month since my last update of my ranking of the best players to join the LPGA since 2005, but there are some significant shifts, with Shanshan Feng, Lexi Thompson, Amy Yang, Caroline Hedwall, Pornanong Phatlum, Gerina Piller, and Hee Kyung Seo rising the fastest and the top rookies from the Class of 2013 falling the farthest.  (In my system, Caroline Masson would have just beaten out Chie Arimura for Rookie of the Year.)
