Ko Jin-young To Win First Major In Four Years Kim Joo-Hyung To Miss First Tournament
The world number one in women’s golf, Jin Young Ko, is set to compete in the fourth major of the LPGA Tour season, the Amundi Evian Championship.
It will be interesting to see if the 2019 winner can bring back the trophy after four years. In 2019, Jin Young Ko pulled off a thrilling upset in bad weather to win his first Evian Championship and second major. It would be the last time he kissed a major trophy. In May, Ko reclaimed the World No. 1 ranking after winning the Cognizant Founders Cup.However, she hasn’t been able to accumulate wins in major tournaments, missing the cut at the US Women’s Open earlier this month. “I’m not impatient because I haven’t won a major. My biggest goal is to spend happy time with my family and friends.” While Ko has said she won’t put any pressure on herself to win a major, the Evian Championship is a tournament she has fond memories of. Returning to the top casinositeking of the tournament after a four-year absence, adding a major title, and defending his world No. 1 ranking. Ko Jin-young will be hunting for all three. The PGA Tour’s newest diva has withdrawn from the Wyndham Championship early next month. Kim became the first Korean to finish runner-up at the season’s final major, The Open, after battling injuries. “I am devastated to have to cancel my participation in the tournament,” he said, “I am undergoing treatment to fully recover my right ankle.” Kim, who burst onto the scene at last year’s Wyndham Championship with his first win on Tour, will not be able to defend his title. Kim plans to focus on rehabilitation, targeting the season’s playoffs as the point of return.
