Park In-bee is looking to reclaim the top spot in women's golf, a position she ceded to American Stacy Lewis last week after keeping a grip on it for 59 weeks.

In the global rankings announced by the LPGA on Monday, Park had 10.04 points, a few points behind Lewis who had 10.34.

A series of lackluster performances caused the Korean to slip to second, but by winning the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic last weekend she narrowed the gap from 0.81 points to 0.3. Lewis, who became world No. 1 by winning the ShopRite LPGA Classic two weeks ago, shared sixth place in the latest tournament.

Park could reclaim the coveted world No. 1 ranking depending on how she performs at the U.S. Women's Open next week in North Carolina.
