By Larry Fine RANCHO MIRAGE, California (Reuters) – The first major of the women’s golf season could lead to a changing of the guard at the top of the rankings at the ANA Inspiration at Mission Hills Country Club starting on Thursday. Teen sensation Lydia Ko has held the top spot for 75 consecutive weeks but the New Zealander could be supplanted by Thai Ariya Jutanugarn, who she pipped last year to win her second major. Jutanugarn, who bogeyed the last three holes and was overtaken by the charging Ko, can leapfrog the New Zealander with a win should the 19 year old finish fifth or worse.
