    Golfer Chun In-gee has been ranked No. 10 in the latest Rolex women's world rankings released on Tuesday.
    She rose one notch from No. 11 a week earlier after finishing runner-up at the AIG Women's Open, the final LPGA major of the season, on Sunday.
    She returned to the top 10 for the first time in four years and five months since she reached No. 8 in March 2018. Chun's highest ranking so far was No. 3, which she reached in 2016 and 2017.
    This season, she won the KPMG Women's PGA Championship, another major held in June, as well.
    Compatriot Ko Jin-young maintained the top spot, followed by Korean-Australian Lee Min-jee and Nelly Korda of the U.S. The other Korean in the top 10 was Kim Hyo-joo at No. 8.
