WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA – Lydia Ko continues to hang on to the No. 1 spot on the Rolex World Rankings, but to say that it is far from a runaway is underselling the race by a wide margin. This week at the Kingsmill Championship:

  • If Ko wins, she will remain No. 1
  • If either So Yeon Ryu or Ariya Jutanugarn win, they will become No. 1
  • If Ko, Ryu and Jutanugarn finish T2, Ko will remain No. 1
  • If Ko and Jutanugarn finish T2 AND Ryu finishes 3rd or worse, Ko will remain No. 1

“I used to have being the No.1 player in the world as one of my goals,” Ryu told The Post this week. “But at the time I was like No. 9 in the world, so it was a far-off dream. Now, I got to No. 2 so quickly, that I really haven’t had time to think about it. And I don’t think about it. I certainly don’t go through all the scenarios. I just focus on playing. If I win, everything else will take care of itself. Winning takes care of a lot.”
