Park Sung-hyun has retained her world No. 1 ranking despite finishing far behind world No. 2 Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand at the Buick LPGA Shanghai on Sunday. The LPGA Tour's website had earlier mistakenly explained that Park would need a top-six finish at the championship to retain her No. 1 ranking.
But Park remained in the top spot despite coming in 26th, as Jutanugarn shared second place with six others. On Monday, Park had a total of 8.10 tour points, followed by Jutanugarn with 8.02 points. Park has now held the top spot for 10 straight weeks.
