    Golfer Park Sung-hyun is set to reclaim the No. 1 spot in the world rankings after winning her third LGPA title of the season on Sunday.

    In the final round of the Indy Women in Tech Championship in Indianapolis, Indiana, Park hit four birdies to move into a playoff. She hit another birdie to finish with a 23-under 265, beating Lizette Salas of the U.S. who edged her by two shots a day earlier.

    With current world No. 1 Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand finishing the tournament in seventh place, Park is expected to reclaim the top spot when the rankings are released later this week.

    She rose to No. 1 in November last year, but lost it to China's Feng Shanshan a week later.
