    Park In-bee leapt six spots to No. 3 in the latest world rankings released on Tuesday, after finishing runner-up at a major LGPA championship the day before.

    Park missed a chance to capture her eighth major title and 20th LPGA victory in her career, as she was narrowly upset by Swedish outsider Pernilla Lindberg at the ANA Inspiration in Rancho Mirage, California after a marathon playoff.

    Park won US$223,635 in prize money for this tournament, leading the season's money list at present with a total of US$480,221.

    Shanshan Feng of China topped the world rankings, followed by Lexi Thompson of the U.S.
