Ace Ko Jin-young regains world No. 1 ranking after 7 months

For the first time in seven months, South Korea’s Jin Young Ko (pictured) has regained the top spot in the world rankings.

According to the Rolex World Rankings released on Wednesday, the South Korean has returned to the top spot with 8.26 world ranking points, pushing out former leader Nelly Koda (8.25). Last week, Koda was in first place with 8.40 points and Ko was in second place with 8.38 points.

This is the first time in seven months that Ko has reclaimed the top spot since late October last year. After experiencing an injury-plagued slump, Ko focused on healing her injuries and correcting her swing during winter training and won two titles this season, the HSBC World Championship in March and the Cognizant Founders Cup in May.메이저놀이터

Ko, who first reached No. 1 in April 2019, has spent a total of 146 weeks at the top of the world rankings, second only to Lorena Ochoa (Retired-Mexico) at 158 weeks.

Lydia Ko (NZL) remained at No. 3 despite her recent slump, followed by Lilia Boo (USA), winner of the major Chevron Championship, at No. 4, and Minjee Lee (AUS), who lost to Ko in a playoff at the Cognizant Founders Cup, at No. 5. Kim Hyo-ju held on to 10th place.

Meanwhile, Sung Yoo-jin Sung, who won the KLPGA Tour’s Doosan Match Play Championship, jumped 19 spots to No. 85. The runner-up, Park Hyun-kyung, climbed 10 spots to No. 65.
