Ko's Run as #1 Ends This Weekend

Why is there a photo of So Yeon Ryu here? Because she will determine who is the new Women's #1 when the Rolex Rankings come out next week.

So Yeon Ryu

Neither Lydia Ko nor Ariya Jutanugarn is playing at this week's ShopRite LPGA Classic, but So Yeon Ryu is. And that's why she will determine who takes up the crown next week.

Here's the situation: The current Rolex Ranking points look like this:
  1. Lydia Ko, 8.40
  2. Ariya Jutanugarn, 8.33
  3. So Yeon Ryu, 8.21
That's less than .2 points between the three.

Lydia WILL lose her position this week, and either Ariya or So Yeon will take over. For a change, the scenario is very simple:
  • If So Yeon finishes in solo third or better this week, she will be the new #1.
  • If she finishes T3 or worse, Ariya will be the new #1.
And after the first round, the leader -- Anna Nordqvist -- is at -7, with four players at T2, at -6. So Yeon is at +3, which is T98.

This will be a very interesting weekend for the LPGA.
