Sung Hyun Park moved back to Rolex world No. 1 with her victory Sunday at the Indy Women in Tech Championship.

With her 10-foot birdie defeating Lizette Salas on the first sudden death playoff hole at Brickyard Crossing, Park knocked Ariya Jutanugarn off the top of the world rankings.

It marks Park’s second ascension to world No. 1.

Park lasted a week at the top the first time she moved to No. 1 in November of last year. Jutanugarn’s second run at No. 1 ends after three weeks.
