FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Former University of Arkansas standout Stacy Lewis is in the top spot in the Rolex Rankings and holds the top spot in the women’s Olympic Golf Rankings released this week.

The Olympic rankings will dovetail off the Rolex Rankings, with a qualifying period beginning last week and running through July 11, 2016- when the 60 spots on the women’s side will be finalized.

The top 15 women in the standings will automatically earn spots at the 2016 Olympics - with the caveat that each country has no more than four representatives among the top 15.

The U.S. is the only nation that would currently reach that maximum, with spots going to Lewis, Lexi Thompson, Michelle Wie and Cristie Kerr.
