Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Shanshan Feng earned a 1-stroke victory at the Reignwood LPGA Classic on Sunday, inching her up a place to eighth in this week's women's world rankings.

Feng's first victory since the 2012 LPGA Championship was secured with an eagle at the 72nd hole of the tournament. Her second career LPGA Tour victory moved her up a place from ninth last week.

Inbee Park maintained the No. 1 spot ahead of Suzann Pettersen and Stacy Lewis, who finished in second place behind Feng.

So Yeon Ryu and Lydia Ko swapped places to sit in fourth and fifth, respectively, while Na Yeon Choi and Karrie Webb held firm in sixth and seventh.

Feng and Catriona Matthew each moved up a place to sit in eighth and ninth, which caused I.K. Kim to fall a pair of slots to round out the top 10.

Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr, Jiyai Shin and Ai Miyazato stayed put from 11th through 14th. Angela Stanford and Lizette Salas exchanged places to sit in 15th and 16th.

Hee Young Park remained in 17th ahead of Mika Miyazato, who collected a win at the Japan Women's Open Golf Championship, an LPGA of Japan Tour major, on Sunday to move up to 18th.

Miyazato's move caused Beatriz Recari to fall a place to 19th and former world No. 1 Yani Tseng held still at 20th.
