The top spots in the men’s and women’s professional golf world rankings have changed at the same time.
Jin Young Ko returned to the top of the women’s Rolex World Golf Ranking after a seven-month absence. Ko, who was ranked second until last week, overtook Nelly Coda of the United States in the world rankings released on the 23rd. With 8.26 ranking points, Ko narrowly edged out Coda, who had 8.25. Last week, Koda was ranked No. 1 with 8.40 points and Ko was ranked No. 2 with 8.38 points.
This is the first time in seven months that Go Jin-young has been the world number one since late October last year. Ataya Thititjer (Thailand), Koda, and Lydia Goh (New Zealand) have since stepped down from the top spot.
Ko, who first became the world No. 1 in April 2019, has now spent a total of 146 weeks at the top of the rankings, second only to Lorena Ochoa (retired-Mexico) with 158 weeks.
Meanwhile, in men’s golf, Scotty Schauffler (USA) knocked John Rahm (Spain) off the top spot.
Schauffler finished tied for second at the PGA Championship, which concluded today, and his 10.9673 ranking points in the Omega World Rankings afterward propelled him to the top spot, ahead of Ram (10.5693), who is tied for 50th.먹튀검증
Schaeffler, Rahm and Rory McIlroy have shared the top spot in men’s golf this year. McIlroy held the top spot at the end of last year, but Schauffler took the top spot after winning the Phoenix Open in February. However, Rahm moved into the top spot after winning the Genesis Invitational. Schauffler then won the Players Championship to regain the top spot, but Rahm won the Masters to regain the lead and then swapped places again after the PGA Championship. McIlroy, who finished tied for seventh, remained in third place.
Brooks Koepka, who won the PGA Championship, jumped 31 spots to No. 13 from No. 44 last week.
