Inbee Park remained atop of the Rolex Women's World Rankings following the season-ending Titleholder's championship in Naples, Fla.

Park, one of four South Koreans in the top 10, has 11.79 points, with Norway's Suzann Pettersen closing out 2013 with 11.08. The United State's Stacy Lewis, who briefly held the No. 1 spot earlier in the year, finished third with 9.89. The top 5 also includes China's Shanshan Feng, who won the season-ending tournament Sunday to move up three spots, and South Korea's So Yeon Ryu.

New Zealand's Lydia Ko, who was granted her LPGA card earlier this month, dropped one spot to No. 6 in the final rankings, followed by South Korea's Na Yeon Choi, Australia's Karrie Webb, American Lexi Thompson and South Korea's I.K. Kim.

Yani Tseng, who began the year with a commanding lead as the world's No. 1 player, finished her difficult 2013 ranked 29th.

The United State's Gerina Piller, a former "Big Break" contestent who missed a birdie putt to force a playoff with Feng on Sunday, vaulted 17 spots to a career-high 36th. Other Americans of note include Cristie Kerr (12th), Paula Creamer (13th), Angela Stanford (16th), Lizette Salas (20th), Jessica Korda (37th), Brittany Lincicome (41st) and Morgan Pressel (46th). Michelle Wie is 62nd.
