Yani Tseng is not worried about losing her top ranking on the LPGA Tour, believing it may even turn her disappointing results around.
The five-time major winner from Taiwan has been No. 1 for more than two years, but South Korean Na Yeon Choi and American Stacy Lewis, who captured the HSBC Women's Champions on Sunday, are rapidly closing the gap.
In the new rankings released Monday, Tseng had 9.53 average world-ranking points, while Choi had 8.85 and Lewis was just behind with 8.84, jumping from fourth to third.
Tseng said Sunday the pressure of being No. 1 for so long had taken a toll on her, contributing to her midseason slump last year. She hasn't won a tournament since the Kia Classic last March.
