The U.S. LPGA Tour season opened with the inaugural Coates Golf Championship at the Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club in Florida on Wednesday, featuring top golfers including Park In-bee, Lydia Ko and Stacy Lewis.
World No.1 Park is poised to exceed US$10 million in accumulated prize money this season. Since she turned pro in 2007, Park has earned US$9.951 million in prize money.
If she finishes within the top four at the Coates Golf Championship, she will become the ninth golfer ever to achieve this feat in the history of the tour.
Ko is going after her. At 9.44 points, she is just 0.54 points behind Park in ranking points. She has undergone a big transformation in her looks, getting double eyelid surgery and wearing contact lenses instead of her trademark spectacles.
