Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Stacy Lewis earned her second career major victory at the Women's British Open on Sunday, but it still was not enough to move her back into the top spot of the latest women's world rankings.

Lewis' win snapped a streak of 10 straight non-American winners in the majors, which was the longest such streak in LPGA Tour history.

She remained No. 2 in the rankings, however, as Inbee Park held on to the top spot on the weight of her six wins this season, including the first three majors of the year.

The top seven spots overall remained the same with Park and Lewis again being followed by Suzann Pettersen, Na Yeon Choi, So Yeon Ryu, Karrie Webb and Shanshan Feng.

Catriona Matthew jumped up two spots to eighth, while I.K. Kim stayed at ninth and Jiyai Shin fell two places to 10th.

Paula Creamer held firm at No. 11 ahead of Cristie Kerr and Ai Miyazato, who swapped places to 12th and 13th, respectively. Former No. 1 Yani Tseng stayed in 14th.

Hee Young Park finished in second at St. Andrews to vault six spots up the rankings to 15th, which caused Angela Stanford, Mike Miyazato and Lydia Ko to all fall a spot to 16th through 18th.

Lizette Salas moved up a spot to 19th and Beatriz Recari fell two places to round out the top 20. Ariya Jutanugarn dropped a pair of spots to fall just out of the top 20 at No. 21.
