Golf player Ko Jin-young jumps to third place in the female golf world rankings…Start to recapture the top spot.
Golf player Ko Jin-young (28) has started to recapture the world’s No. 1 ranking.
Ko Jin-young ranked third in the women’s golf world rankings announced on the 7th (Korea Standard Time). On February 28, he was ranked 5th in the world rankings.
Golfer Ko Jin-young won the HSBC Women’s World Championship, her first competition last year, but later faltered due to a wrist injury. In particular, he has been eliminated from the cut (3 times) and abstained (1 time) in four consecutive tournaments since August, falling from the top spot in the world rankings on November 1. Since then, it has fallen to fifth place.
However, it announced a revival this year. She tied for sixth at the Honda LPGA Thailand, her first competition, and succeeded in defending her title at the HSBC Women’s World Championship.
Lydia Ko (New Zealand) maintained her No. 1 spot in the world rankings. Nellie Coda of the U.S. also remained in second place.
It seems that a three-way race will take place again for the world’s No. 1 ranking. Lydia Ko’s average ranking point is 8.59 points, with Koda 8.10 points and Ko Jin-young 7.38 points.
Jeon In-ji (29) ranked eighth and Kim Hyo-joo (28) ranked ninth as South Korean players. Neither had a change in the rankings. Park Min-ji (25), who plays on the KLPGA Tour, ranked 19th and Choi Hye-jin (24) ranked 21st, while Shin Ji-ae (35), who won the Japan Ladies Professional Golf Association (JLPGA) Tour Daikin Orchid Ladies Tournament, rose 12 notches to 54th.
