Inbee Park Is New No. 1 in Rolex Rankings

Inbee Park (Allison)
YANI TSENG, STACY LEWIS AND NOW Inbee Park. It has been musical chairs in recent weeks at the top of the Rolex Rankings, otherwise known as the world golf rankings for the ladies. Park recently won the Kraft Nabisco Championship, the year's first major, and then slipped by Lewis on Monday. Lewis was on top of the world for a month.

"This is a very big day in my golf career," Park said at the LPGA Lotte Championship being played this week in Kapolei, Oahu, Hawaii.

"I'm so happy to share it with my family, who are here in Hawaii with me. It's nice to reach this goal, but I know a lot of players are close to No. 1. It gives me something else to play for every week."

Lewis is not far behind in the points standings. Nor is Tseng, who was No. 1 for 109 weeks before Lewis knocked Tseng off the pedestal after two early season wins.

"Nobody else, though, can leave the event [LPGA Lotte Championship] with the No. 1 ranking, according to LPGA projections," wrote Randall Mell at GolfChannel.com.
