‘Season 2 win’ Ko Jin-young jumps to 2nd place in the world ranking… 1st place Koda and 0.02 points
Jin-young Ko (28, Solaire), who won the second championship of the season on the LPGA Tour, is aiming for a re-registration at the top of the women’s golf world rankings.
In the Rolex Women’s Golf World Rankings announced on the 16th (hereinafter Korean time), Ko Jin-young marked 2nd place, up one notch from last week’s 3rd place, with her ranking point of 8.38.
In the LPGA Tour Founders Cup, which ended on the 15th, Ko Jin-young defeated Lee Min-ji (Australia) after an extended match and won the trophy, her second of the season and her 15th tour career.
Ko Jin-young, who reached the top two months after the HSBC World Championship in March, rebounded again in her world rankings.
He rose to world No. 1 in January of last year, but in the second half of the year, due to wrist pain, he had to miss the tournament for a long time, and in November of last year, after nine months, he came down from the top.
Afterwards, Ko Jin-young, who once fell to 5th place in the rankings, succeeded in rebounding this year and won 2 wins and rose to 2nd place again.
Her score difference with Nellie Corda (USA, 8.40 points), the world number one, is only 0.02 points, so she can reverse at any time.
Koda and Koh Jin-young will both miss this week’s Bank of Hope Match Play on the LPGA Tour.
Coda kept the No. 1 spot for four consecutive weeks, but the No. 1 position became unsafe.
Recently, Lydia Ko (New Zealand), who has been somewhat sluggish, gave up the second place to Jinyoung Ko and became third. He kept the top spot in the rankings until the middle of last month, but lost the top spot to Koda, and gave up the second place within a month.
Lilia Boo (USA) maintained 4th place, and Lee Min-ji, who lost to Ko Jin-young in overtime, moved up one step from 6th place last week to 5th place. Instead, Ataya Titikkun (Thailand) fell from 5th to 6th.
Lexi Thompson (USA) kept 7th place, Georgia Hall (England) was ranked 8th, and Brooke Henderson (Canada) was ranked 9th. Kim Hyo-joo (28, Lotte) maintained 10th place.스포츠토토
‘Rookie’ Yoo Hae-ran (22, Daol Financial Group), who ranked fourth in the Founders Cup alone, rose 9 places from last week to 36th.
Lim Jin-hee (25, Angang Construction), who recorded her third win in her personal career at the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship of the Korea Women’s Professional Golf (KLPGA) Tour last week, jumped 19 steps to 84th, successfully entering the top 100.
