Eugene Sung and Ji-ae Shin, who finished runner-up in the US and Japan tours respectively, raised their world rankings.
In the women’s golf world rankings announced on the 18th, Sung Yu-jin was ranked 107th, up 28 places from last week’s 135th. Seong Yu-jin finished runner-up after overtime at the LPGA Tour Lotte Championship, which ended in Hawaii on the 16th.
Seong Yu-jin, who plays on the KLPGA Tour, won the KLPGA Tour Lotte Open in June last year and qualified for this tournament. She took the lead in the second and third rounds, increasing her chances of winning the ‘non-member’. However, she finished the tournament as runner-up, losing in overtime in the final round.토스카지노
Grace Kim, who won her first LPGA Tour victory by defeating Sung Yu-jin in overtime, climbed 98 places from 178 to 80th.
Shin Ji-ae, who finished runner-up at the JLPGA Tour KKT Cup Vantelin Ladies Open, entered the top 50 in the world rankings in 1 year and 5 months. Shin Ji-ae earned 1.90 of her ranking points and was named 45th, up 12 spots from last week’s 57th.
Shin Ji-ae is enjoying her ‘second prime’, including victories at the Australian Women’s Professional Golf (WPGA) Tour Victorian Open in February and the Daikin Orchid Ladies Golf Tournament, the JLPGA Tour season opener last month.
Her top rankings were largely unchanged. Lydia Ko maintained the number one spot for 21 consecutive weeks, followed by Nellie Korda and Ko Jin-young. Lee Min-ji, a Korean-American from Australia, pushed out Ataya Titikkun and came in 4th place. Titikkun fell to 5th place. Kim Hyo-joo placed 9th.
