This is the first year the LPGA has designated five events as major tournaments. Park won the first three -- the Kraft Nabisco Championship, the LPGA Championship and the U.S. Women's Open -- but ended up tied for 42nd at the Ricoh Women's British Open. No. 2-ranked Stacy Lewis won that tournament.
Park is the defending Evian champion, although when she won the tournament in July 2012, it wasn't yet considered a major.
Park has been ranked No. 1 for the last 22 weeks, which is the fourth-longest consecutive string atop the rankings. The 22-week total is fifth most, three weeks behind Jiyai Shin.
The Nos. 7-10 players are closely bunched and an adjustment of points from previous tournaments allowed Catriona Matthew to move up two places this week even though the LPGA didn't have a tournament.
Matthew goes from ninth to seventh, forcing Lydia Ko to eighth and Feng Shanshan to ninth. However, Matthew's ranking points average of 5.77 is just 0.19 ahead of 10th-ranked I.K. Kim.
