American Nelly Korda has returned to No. 1 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings. Korda finished in a tie for ninth at The Amundi Evian Championship to overtake Jin Young Ko, who finished in a tie for 20th in France and has held the top spot for the last 10 weeks. Ko reascended to world No. 1 following her victory at the Cognizant Founders Cup in May.
It’s the fifth time in the eight-time LPGA Tour winner’s career that she has held the top spot, and Korda last did so earlier this season from April 24 to May 21. Including this week, she has spent 36 total weeks as Rolex Rankings No. 1.
