Amateur teen golfer Choi Hye-jin ranked 22nd in the latest women's world rankings released on Monday, up three spots from a week earlier.
Choi finished second at the U.S. Women's Open last month and won two events on the KLPGA Tour in July and August.
She will turn pro with a huge sponsorship deal from Lotte next week just after her 18th birthday on Wednesday.
Ryu So-yeon of Korea was placed on top, followed by Lexi Thompson of the U.S., Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand, Park Sung-hyun of Korea and Lydia Ko of New Zealand.
