Golfer Park Sung-hyun reclaimed the No. 1 spot in the latest world rankings released on Tuesday after a four-month absence from the top.
Park's ranking points rose to 6.74 following her victory at the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore on Sunday, putting her 0.2 points ahead of Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand.
Park first reached No. 1 in November 2017 but relinquished the lead to Shanshan Feng of China after a week. She regained the crown in October 2018 and held it for about two months before Jutanugarn seized it from her. Park and Jutanugarn have been swapping places at the summit of women’s golf since the end of July last year.
Australia's Lee Min-jee, who finished second in her last two LPGA tournaments, is ranked third, followed by Ryu So-yeon and Park In-bee.
