So I'm really happy about that, and I hope all the Chinese are going to be watching me and the Chinese can play golf. "I really enjoy the moment and hopefully this could encourage a younger generation in China to go for this sport".

Reaching No. 1 in the Rolex Rankings culminated a superb four-week stretch for the 28-year-old Feng, who began her streak sitting sixth.

As well as being China's first number one, she was also the country's first victor on the LPGA Tour (2012 Wegman's LPGA Championship).

Going into last week's Blue Bay LPGA, Feng was ranked third, which tied the highest ranking of her career.

"I finished first in China, so I actually claimed the world number one in front of all the people at home", said Feng, who is from the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou and turned professional in 2007.
