Newcomer Hae-Ran Yoo, who had the best performance since her debut on the LPGA Tour, jumped 9 places in the world rankings. It means that now she has started to make her name known on the world stage in earnest.
Yoo Hae-ran ranked 44th in the women’s golf weekly world ranking announced on the 2nd. Last week she jumped from 53rd place, Yoo Hae-ran tied for 6th place at the JM Eagle LA Championships, which ended on the 1st. It is her second top-10 finish, following a tie for 7th at the Drive-On Championship, her first event of the year, and her best ever on the LPGA Tour.
