Ko dethroned as world golf No.1

Ko dethroned as world golf No.1

Ryu, now ranked third in the world, can leapfrog world number two Ariya to seize number one if she finishes third or better - although a tie for second or third could open the door for Jutanugarn. In-Kyung Kim, of South Korea, tees off on the third hole during the final round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic golf tournament Sunday, June 4, 2017, in Galloway Township, N.J.

"Today was definitely different wind than yesterday", she added. "Of course, like everybody, want to win the first tournament and it's still my big goal, but I just want to focus what I have to do out there".

"You can't shoot over par on Sunday, that's for sure", Creamer said.

Ko was guaranteed to lose the top spot to Jutanugarn or Ryu this weekend, and Jutanugarn got the position when Ryu failed to make the cut - needing a top three finish at the tournament to claim the top spot in the rankings.

It was the fifth LPGA victory for Kim, who turns 29 on June 13. "Whatever happens tomorrow happens, but I feel like my golf game is in a good place".

"I really didn't expect it right away, but I knew my game was better than previous year".

Kim, who said Saturday she loved coming to this event because of her relationship with Special Olympics New Jersey, needed only 79 putts on the week. "I played solid. I hit some good putts that didn't go in and made some good putts that went in". I was hoping I would play better, but I couldn't.

BJP has 'appropriate position' for Rajinikanth, says Nitin Gadkari
Chennai: Kollywood Stylemannan Rajinikanth's political entry has been hit by a massive controversy even before it could take off. His May 19 speech was replete with hints of political ambition while the superstar met with his fans after a long time.

"We were on the clock for four holes", Creamer said.

Kim, who ended a six-year victory drought when she lifted the trophy at the Reignwood LPGA Classic in China in October, came into the final round tied for the lead with American Paula Creamer. Ryu's failure to finish solo third or better meant that Jutanugarn took over at the top. She then endured a long dry spell before breaking through in October past year.

Ariya Jutanugarn will replace Lydia Ko as the new No. 1 in the Rolex Women's World Rankings with Sunday's conclusion of the ShopRite Classic, according to LPGA projections.

She triumphed in five tournaments last year, including the Women's British Open, but has not yet won one this year.

Nordqvist stayed in touch all day in her bid for a "three-peat" but her own 69 left her two adrift on 204. "I'm really happy to get back".

Kim also parred the rest of her way after the bogey at the 14th to close out a two-shot win.
