Seeing Jin Young Ko’s name anywhere on the leaderboard is sure to strike fear into the hearts of her competitors on the LPGA Tour. Why? Because she has been ranked #1 in the world for a record 164 weeks (non-consecutive). She has 15 victories on the LPGA Tour and her future remains bright.

She is in the top half of the pack when it comes to driving distance and in the top third in driving accuracy, and when you put the two together, it makes her one of the best drivers of the ball. She is also in the top 10 in greens in regulation and is also in the top 10 in putts per GIR. When you add all of that together, it makes for a formidable task to best her on any given week.

Her work ethic is also very strong, and it doesn’t hurt to be extremely talented. At 28 years old, she has plenty of time to earn more victories and add to her two major championships, as well.
