Lydia Ko (New Zealand), who shot a signal of revival by winning the opening game of the LPGA Tour, rose three notches to ninth place in the world rankings.
In the Rolex Women’s Golf World Rankings announced on the 23rd (Korea time), Lydia Ko scored 4.81 ranking points, rising three places from 12th place last week to ninth place.
Lida Go won the Hilton Grand Bacations Tournament of Champions (total prize money of $1.5 million), the opening game of the 2024 LPGA Tour, which ended the previous day, with a final 14-under 274.
Ko, who swept the LPGA Tour’s Player of the Year award and the lowest at-bats award with three wins in 2022, was sluggish, failing to win even one in 2023.
However, he tried hard to rebound, such as correcting his swing in the new season, and won the opening game. 랭크카지노도메인
With this victory, she has entered the top 10 again in the world rankings. Ko returned to the top 10 in 2022, but was pushed out of the top 10 due to her slump in 2023.
It is the first time in two months that Lydia Ko has entered the top 10 in the world rankings since November last year.
Alexa Pano of the U.S., who was the runner-up to Lydia Ko at the same competition, saw her rise by 46 notches. Pano, whose world ranking was 124th last week, instantly rose to 78th.
There was no significant change in the top rankings. Lilia Boo of the U.S. was still No. 1, followed by Yin Luoning of China and Celine Butier of France.
However, Nellie Koda of the U.S. and Lee Min-ji of Australia traded places to become fourth and fifth.
Ko Jin-young (29, Solaire) and Kim Hyo-joo (29, Lotte) remained sixth and seventh, respectively.
