Korean golfing professional Park In Bee has lost her title as the world’s number ranked women’s player of the world. She lost the title after a tremendous 59 consecutive weeks at the number one spot. She loses the spot to US rival Stacy Lewis.
"I feel a bit relieved after relinquishing the title. It's not like the end of the world," said Park.
Lewis secured enough points to replace her by winning the LPGA Tour's ShopRite Classic in Galloway, New Jersey with a 16-under 197. Park finished tied for eighth at seven-under. "I will try to be patient and do my best as there are many more tournaments down the road," she said.
"You never get tired of being world No. 1. My biggest goal this season is to win the Women's British Open, which I failed to do last year. I hope my recent disappointing performances encourage me to prepare better for the majors," she added.
It is Lewis's second time at the top of the golf world rankings as she also held the spot for four weeks before Park took over in April last year.
