DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Inbee Park has taken over the top spot in the women's golf ranking, ending Stacy Lewis' four-week run at No. 1.

Park moved ahead of Lewis in the ranking released Monday, eight days after winning the Kraft Nabisco Championship for her second major title and second victory of the year. The 24-year-old South Korean player also won the LPGA Thailand in February.

Lewis is second, an average of 0.04 points per event behind Park in the ranking.

Taiwan's Yani Tseng remains No. 3. She was No. 1 for 109 weeks before Lewis won consecutive events in Singapore and Phoenix to take the top spot.
