The Defending Champion Returns to Defend

Jin Young Ko returns after several weeks of rehab to defend her title at the BMW Ladies Championship on the LPGA in Korea.

Defending champion Jin Young Ko

She says it's not quite back to full strength but Jin Young told reporters it wasn't bad enough that she could blame poor play on it. We know from the past that she plays well after extended time off, but we also know that 2022 hasn't seen the game we've come to expect from her. It'll be interesting to see how her wrist holds up.

In fact, 6 of the Top10 in the Rolex Rankings will tee it up in this invitational event. No less than 18 players have a mathematical chance of winning Rolex LPGA Player of the Year so expect to see some serious competition!

On a sadder note, Na Yeon Choi is calling it quits this week as she tees it up for the last time. She hasn't won since 2015 and has been a bit off her game this year. The player who has always tried to keep her life balanced and interesting has apparently decided to try something new, and I for one wish her luck. I hope she has a great tournament this week.

GC's live coverage from Korea begins Wednesday night (TONIGHT!) at 11pm ET. Will Jin Young Ko be able to shock us all again with a win after a layoff? Will one of the other players take a big step toward the 2022 POY? Tonight's the beginning of the final run at the title!
