    Ko Jin-young has clinched her second title of the season and her ninth career LPGA Tour victory.

    Ko won the 2021 Cambia Portland Classic in Oregon on Sunday with 11-under 205, four strokes ahead of runners-up Lee Jeong-eun of Korea and Korean-Australian Su Oh.

    Heavy rain cut short the event at 54 holes or three rounds. Ko held on to her world No. 2 spot with 8.26 points and is now just 1.7 points behind world No. 1 Nellie Korda of the U.S., who has 9.96 points.

    The next three spots in the world rankings are filled by Koreans Park In-bee, Kim Sei-young, and Kim Hyo-joo. Lydia Ko, a Korean-New Zealander, is in sixth.
