Park Sung-hyun has lost the world No. 1 position in women's golf to a Chinese rival only a week after she became the first rookie to reach the top of the LPGA Tour.

Park dropped a spot to No. 2 in the latest women's world rankings out Monday, overtaken by Feng Shanshan, who won the Blue Bay LPGA in China last week.

Feng is the first Chinese player to achieve the feat. She has won three titles this season and nine in total in her career.

Park tied for third at Blue Bay, taking her rankings points to 8.44, 0.02 behind Feng. Ryu So-yeon came third with 8.43.
