Inbee Park of South Korea waves aftre making a birdie putt on the first hole during the final round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club on April 7, 2013 in Rancho Mirage, California.

Inbee Park saw a move within the top-50 on the Rolex Rankings this week. With her win, Park took take over the No. 2 spot in the Rolex Rankings on Monday, a spot that the South Korean has been eyeing for some time. It will be the highest ranking for the six-year tour member in her career. She’s has two wins in five starts already in 2013 and will be carrying a ton of momentum in the chase for No. 1.

“That's the place that I've always wanted to go, and I only have one more spot to go,” said Park. “That brings a lot of momentum, keeps momentum going for me, especially after this week.  I feel a lot of confidence with my swing and with my putting.  Everything has been going the right way this season, and it feels good.

“Well, I haven't really thought that far forward,” said Park. “Yeah, I've played five tournaments on the LPGA Tour, and I've won two of them, which is a very good start.  It's pressure off me for the rest of the season.  I'm just going to go out there and enjoy the season.”
