      Ko Jin-young regained the top spot in the Rolex women's world golf rankings released this week.

      Ko leads the rankings with 9.51 points, overtaking Nelly Korda of the U.S. with 9.48 points.

      Korda ended her 12-week reign as the world's No. 1 player after playing the first two events of this year including the season-opening Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, while Ko has yet to play this season.

      Lydia Ko of New Zealand, who picked up her 17th career win at the Gainbridge LPGA in Boca Rio last week, ranked third (6.54 points), followed by Park In-bee at No. 4 (5.53 points) and Kim Sei-young at No. 5 (5.49 points).
