S. Korean female golfers take top 3 spots in world rankings

 

South Korean female golfers have taken the top 3 spots in the latest world rankings.

 

In the latest rankings released on Monday (U.S. time), Lee Jeong Eun grabbed a career-high No. 3. Ko Jin Young remained at No. 1 for the 10th consecutive week, followed by Park Sung Hyun at No. 2.

 

It is the first time for 3 golfers from the same country to occupy the top three places since the rankings were introduced in February 2006.

 

Former No. 1 Park In Bee placed No. 8 as the 4th South Korean in the top 10.

 

The world rankings are settled based on the strength of the field and players' performances over a 2-year period, plus results from the 13 most recent weeks.

 

South Korean players have combined for 13 victories in 26 LPGA tournaments so far this year.

 

Ko has 4 titles under her belt leading everyone. Park is one of 5 players with 2 wins this year while Lee has a single win at the U.S. Women's Open, one of five LPGA majors.
