    Golfer Ko Jin-young reclaimed the No. 1 spot in the latest world rankings released on Tuesday.

    Ko returned to the top after claiming four titles in her last seven competitions on the LPGA Tour so far this season, including the BMW Ladies Championship earlier this week.

    Her ranking points stood at 9.36, 0.02 points ahead of Nelly Korda of the U.S., who had overtaken her four months earlier.

    Park In-bee ranked third and Kim Sei-young fourth.

    This is the third time Ko has risen to the top of women's golf. She first reached it in April 2019, and her nearly two-year reign from July 2019 was ended by Korda in June this year.

    Ko's total reign of 113 weeks at No. 1 is the second-longest ever after Mexican legend Lorena Ochoa's 158 weeks.
