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".

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.

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.

Feng moves second in the LPGA Tour standings ahead of next week's season finale, where any of the top five will be crowned the Race to CME Globe champion and win the $1million bonus prize with a victory. The last person to hold the No. 1 honors for a single week was American Cristie Kerr, from October 25-31, 2010.

The LPGA Tour heads back to the United States next week for the CME Group Tour Championship in Florida, the final event of the 2017 season.

There are two other South Koreans inside the top 10: Chun In-gee at No. 5 and Kim In-kyung at No. 7.
