In Gee Chun is No. 3 in the world for the first time in her career after her second major championship win at the Evian Championship.
The 22-year-old South Korean continued her remarkable rookie season on the LPGA Tour with Sunday's commanding four-shot victory in Evian-les-Bains, France.
Chun's four-day total of 21-under set a major championship record for males or females. She also locked up the Rookie of the Year award and moved up four spots from No. 7 in the Rolex World Rankings released Monday, passing Inbee Park to become the highest-ranked South Korean.
Chun has spent 52 consecutive weeks in the top 10 of the Rolex Rankings.
Park moved outside of the top 5 players this week and is ranked No. 7. She had spent the previous 206 weeks ranked as one of the top 5 players -- since October 2012.
World No. 1 New Zealand teenager Lydia Ko continues to lead the rankings.
Ko remains comfortably on top with an average of 14.1811 points, ahead of Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn (9.1311).
Chun (7.8646) is followed by Canadian Brooke Henderson (7.6025) and American Lexi Thompson (7.4416) to round out the top five. Henderson and Thompson each dropped one spot.
American Stacy Lewis is ranked ninth.
