Korean's reign at top of women's golf rankings ends after 1 weekBy Yonhap

Park Sung-hyun's reign at the top of women's golf has ended after just one week.
Park fell a spot to No. 2 in the latest women's world rankings announced Monday, as Feng Shanshan of China jumped from third to first on the strength of back-to-back LPGA victories.
Last week, Park became the first LPGA rookie ever to reach No. 1 in the world, when she dethroned fellow South Korean Ryu So-yeon.
When Feng notched her second straight win at Blue Bay on Saturday, Park tied for third place while Ryu sat out.
In this week's rankings, Ryu has fallen to third, but the top three golfers are only separated by 0.03 point in the rankings. Feng is sitting at 8.46, followed by Park with 8.44 and Ryu with 8.43.
The 2017 LPGA season will wrap up this week at the CME Group Tour Championship.
There are two other South Koreans inside the top 10: Chun In-gee at No. 5 and Kim In-kyung at No. 7.
The world rankings evaluate a player's performance over a rolling two-year period weighted in favor of the current year, and an extra emphasis is placed on the most recent 13 weeks. (Yonhap)
