Jin Young Ko.
There are 18 holes left to finish the season of LPGA Tour and nothing is decided. The battle is spectacular. You can not ask for more. Nelly korda (-14) and Jin Young Ko (-14), the two players vying for victory in the Race to CME Globe and Number One in the world, they are tied… for the lead. Extraordinary. A whole year reduced to a round of golf. Sensational.
Korda and Ko share the first place with Celine boutier and Nasa hataoka, two golfers who are not going to settle for being mere comparsas of the great dispute. On the contrary, the French and the Japanese are winners and will try to take the lead from the two queen of women’s golf in 2021.
In addition, we have up to nine players separated only by two strokes, among which are the Mexican Gaby lopez (-13), Leona Maguire (-12) or Lexi Thompson (-12). The LPGA pays homage to itself with a final prime-time chapter that no one will want to miss.
It deserves a special mention what Jin Young Ko. The Korean golfer has dragged on her wrist for weeks and has still been able to reach the last round of the season with her winning chances intact. Today he has signed an impressive 66-stroke round with seven consecutive birdies between holes 2 and 8. Champion breed.
Special prominence, again, for the Solheim players from Europe. Up there is Boutier or Maguire, but also, among the top twenty, we have Nanna Madsen (-12), Georgia Hall (-10), Anna Nordqvist (-9) or Madelene sagstrom (-8). No, Europe’s victory in Ohio was no accident.
Great third round in the CME Group Tour Championship by Carlota Ciganda
Great third round also for Carlota Ciganda (-7). The Navarrese golfer has signed the best round of the week, 67 strokes, and has risen to 26th place. He has put a spot in the spotlight on a place in the top ten of the tournament. Once again, his birdie production has been majestic (7), so we can still expect a twist on the fourth and final day.
