South Korea's Park In-bee has held the top spot in the women's world golf rankings for the 48th consecutive week.

In the latest Rolex Rankings announced Tuesday, the 26-year-old solidified her position after picking up her first victory of 2014 at a Ladies European Tour tournament in China last week.

Park got an average of 10.28 ranking points, followed by Suzann Pettersen of Norway with 9.36 points and Stacy Lewis of the United States with 8.25.

There was no change in the top tier of the rankings this week, with three Koreans in the Top 10.

South Korean-born New Zealander Lydia Ko, 16, remained at No. 4 and reigning 2013 LPGA Rookie of the Year Ryu So-yeon held onto the No. 5 spot.

Park first reached No. 1 in the women's world rankings on April 15, 2013. Since then, she has won five of her six 2013 titles, a run that includes three major tournament championships. (Yonhap)
