South Korea's Park In-bee has held the top post in the women's world golf rankings for the 46th consecutive week.

In the latest Rolex Rankings announced Tuesday, the 26-year-old solidified her top spot after getting an average of 10.3 ranking points.

Suzann Pettersen of Norway, who competed for the money title against Park in the Honda LPGA Thailand of 2014 on Sunday, ranked second with 9.54 points, followed by Stacy Lewis of the United States with 8.70.

Anna Nordqvist, who had claimed the latest LPGA victory by beating defending champion Park by two strokes, climbed to the 14th, and third-place finisher Catriona Matthew of Scotland returned to No. 10.

South Korean-born New Zealander Lydia Ko remained at No. 4, followed by reigning 2013 LPGA Rookie of the Year Ryu So-yeon.

Park first reached the No. 1 place in the women's world rankings on April 15, 2013. Over that period, she won five of her six 2013 titles, a run that included three major tournament championships. (Yonhap)
