Jin Young Ko wins HSBC Women’s World Championship


After the first three rounds of the HSBC Women’s World Championship, it is the Korean and former world number 1 Jin Young Ko who takes the lead of the tournament. With her total of -14, she is two strokes ahead of Nelly Korda at -12. Céline Boutier, fourth last week in Thailand, is sixth at the dawn of the last lap with a total of -9.

After three rounds of the HSBC Women’s World Championship, Korean defending champion Jin Young Ko takes control of the tournament with a total score of -14. The former world number 1 had started her event with a simple score of 72 (PAR), before chaining the birdies and signing two consecutive cards of 65 (-7).

Winner last year, Jin Young Ko has the cards in hand to sign the double: the Korean has not won since her coronation last year in Singapore.

Jin Young Ko is two strokes ahead of Nelly Korda. The American player, also a former world number 1, is second with a total of -12. She signs the same card three times: 68 (-4).

Allisen Corpuz and Elizabeth Szokol complete the podium at -11.

Céline Boutier, 13th player in the world and French number 1, is once again at the forefront after her fourth place in Thailand. With two cards of 70 (-2) then a nice 67 (-5) during the moving day, Céline Boutier is in sixth place and will play the penultimate game this Sunday.

World number 1 Lydia Ko is 13th at -7. With seven strokes behind the leader, playing for victory will be difficult for the New Zealander!
