Golfer Park Sung-hyun has jumped from sixth to second in the latest world rankings after winning the KPMG Women's PGA Championships. She grabbed what became her second career LPGA major title in a close playoff against compatriot Ryu So-Yeon in Kildeer, Illinois on Sunday.
With the win she is on the coattails of world No. 1, Park In-bee. The 24-year old golfer has clinched a total of four career victories on the tour in just a little over a year after her debut, including her other major win at last year's U.S. Women's Open.
