    "It's really [an] honor to get Leaders Top 10 twice, in 2019 and two years later. It means I played really well and I [was] really consistent over the year," Ko said after receiving the trophy along with a prize of US$100,000 in Naples, Florida on Wednesday, a day before the opening of the CME Group Tour Championship, the final event of the season, where she hopes to dethrone Nelly Korea of the U.S. from the world No. 1 spot.

    The LPGA Tour "has a lot of good players out there, but I got Leaders Top 10. That means I am a little lucky," she added.
