Apart from some questionable putting performances, it may be argued that Jin Young Ko is the in form player on the KLPGA Tour at the moment. I said it may be argued, so hear me out please…
Ko, who by her high standards had a disappointing first half of the year. Remaining winless as the summer approached was not part of her plan. She expected to be taking over the dominant role that Sung Hyun Park had left behind. Her decision to withdraw during the Korea Women’s Open and take a few weeks break was the best move she made all year. She shut down her social media and stepped away from the limelight.
Upon her return at the MY Championship, Ko finally put herself in contention on Sunday afternoon. Although she came up short, the signs were evident that she was back on the right track. She leads the driving and tee to green stats, but her putting has been her downfall of late.
Although Ko broke through to win the Jeju Samdasoo Masters, it is no exaggeration to say that she could be a multiple winner this season. There’s a feeling that Ko is ready to step it up a few gears soon and snatch all of the end of year honors. It’s going to be an intense, but entertaining last few months of the season!
