Lydia Ko of New Zealand remained atop the Rolex Women’s Golf Rankings but her eighty two-week reign is perilously close to coming to an conclusion.
Ko’s edge over 2nd-rated So Yeon Ryu of South Korea is a mere .23 factors whilst No. three Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand is .25 factors from the major slot.
Moving into this week’s Kingsmill Championship in Williamsburg, Va., Ko is winless in eighteen starts dating to her victory at the 2016 Marathon Basic. She savored a seven.ten cushion atop the rankings previous year in mid-July.
Ryu and Jutanugarn are amongst 4 players to hold down the No. 2 rating because Ko claimed the major spot
Jutanugarn is the defending champion of the Kingsmill celebration, profitable by 1 stroke a year back by capturing a 4-below sixty seven in the remaining round.
In Gee Chun of South Korea and American Lexi Thompson rounded out the major 5.
