    Golfer Ko Jin-young won the Volunteers of America Classic in Texas on Sunday.

    She finished with a 16-under 268 to beat Matilda Castren of Finland by one stroke. It was Ko's first victory of the season as well as her eighth career win on the LPGA Tour, since her victory at the CME Group Tour Championship in December last year.

    The win came just a week after her nearly two-year reign at the top of the women's golf rankings was ended by Nelly Korda of the U.S.

    Korda skipped this week's tournament, so Ko is expected to return to the No. 1 spot.
