Park, Lewis go head to head at Mobile LPGA tourney

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) Inbee Park is back trying to keep the No. 1 ranking in women's, instead of watching others try to take it away from her.

Second-ranked Stacy Lewis couldn't take advantage of Park's absence last week at the Kingsmill Championship in Virginia. They'll be competing head to head again at the Airbus LPGA Classic starting Thursday on The Crossings course at Magnolia Grove on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

Lewis watched Adam Scott wrest the top men's spot from Tiger Woods on Monday without competing last week.

Lewis says it would be nice to take over No. 1 that way ''but I want to win tournaments at the end of the day.'' She won both Alabama tournaments in 2012.
