At -18, the world’s number one golfer Ko Jin Young won the championship with $ 1.1 million at the LPGA Tour 2020 closing event in Naples, Florida.
On the closing day of December 20, Ko hit 66 strokes, scoring a total of seven birdies and one bogey on the par72 field of the Tiburon Golf Club. This Korean golfer averaged 261 yards, hit 11 of the 14 fairways, went to the standard green (GIR) at 17 out of 18 holes and used 29 putt. The penultimate leg, Ko played more than seven yards, was more accurate than the two fairways but the GIR was three holes lower with the same number of putts. During the second half of the field, the player was born in 1995 without bogey.
At the beginning of the year, Ko returned to Korea to heal his ankle, and then stuck Covid-19 until November 19 before returning to the US to play LPGA Tour. Including this season, Ko competed only for four competitions but reached the top 5 three times, including fifth at VOA Classic, T2 major US Women’s Open and won the grand final. And thanks to her high performance in a short time, she ended the 2020 season with the top position of the Rolex Rankings, which reached from 29/7 years ago, topping the bonus table with 1,667,925 USD.
“I still don’t believe I’m here and win the championship,” said Ko during the ceremony.
At the end of the final leg, Ko is a stick less than his compatriot and is also the defending champion Kim Sei Young at the top of the table. Both of them were in the same group, starting from hole 1. At the end of the field, they shared the first place due to Ko two birdies with a bogey and Kim “break even”. To the rest, Ko surpassed Kim thanks to a birdie continuously from hole 12 to hole 14. At that time, Ko Loi led three strokes.
Into hole 15, Ko slipped the birdie, while Kim putt 7.6 meters to keep par but lacked force. Last year, Kim putt 7.6 meter roundabout track recorded birdie 18 hole to the coronation podium. After failing the goal at an important time this year, Kim looked like he had no hope of defending the title because he was four strokes behind Ko and three holes left. Do not miss the chance, scoring two more birdies to win with a gap of five strokes.
Kim and Hannah Green returned to T2 at point -13, each receiving $ 209,555. Mina Harigae alone came in fourth (points -12), receiving $ 117,280. Former world number one Lydia Ko and Lexi Thompson stood T5 (-11). This achievement was 82,320 USD.
Although he did not win at Tiburon, Kim won the “Excellent Golfer” award and Danielle Kang in T30 received Vare Trophy for the first golfer in average achievement over 18 holes all season.
LPGA Tour season only has 18 tournaments, equivalent to 50% of the original schedule. The recently announced 2021 show scheduled 34 events, opening with the Tournament of Champions in Lake Buena Vista, Florida from January 21-24.
