Park and Lewis - Nos. 1 and 2 - grouped in Taiwan


Inbee Park and Stacy Lewis won’t have to look far to be reminded that there was a big change atop the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings this week.

They’re grouped together in Thursday’s start of the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship. Park overtook Lewis at No. 1 in Monday’s newest release of the rankings.

They also don’t have to look far to be reminded they aren’t the only stars favored to win this week. Suzann Pettersen, winner of the last two Taiwan Championships, is in the group with them.
