South Korea’s top-ranked women’s golfer has returned to the top of the world rankings for the first time in seven months.

In the women’s golf world ranking announced on the 23rd, Ko Jin-young moved up one spot from last week’s No. 2 to become No. 1.

In the absence of the U.S. Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour last week, Ko earned 8.26 ranking points, just 0.01 points ahead of Nelly Korda (USA) with 8.25.

This is the first time in about seven months that Ko has been ranked No. 1 since October of last year.

Ko, who first reached the top spot in April 2019, has now spent a total of 146 weeks at the top of the world rankings, making her the second-longest reigning world number one after Lorena Ochoa (158 weeks – retired, Mexico).

Ko claimed two victories this year, at the HSBC World Championships in March and the Founders Cup in May.토토사이트

Sung Yoo-jin Sung, who recently won the Doosan Match Play Championship on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour, is No. 85, up 19 spots from No. 104.
