Last week it was an administrative error that meant that Lydia Ko would retain her status as World Number One. However, it turned out to be a stay of execution as Ariya Jutanugarn aimed to slay the queen from her throne. Now there is a new queen at the top of the rankings and she did it style.
Since the 25th October 2015, the position of world number one has belonged to Lydia Ko. For 86 weeks people looked on wondering when she would finally be toppled. Enter Ariya Jutanugarn. Winner of the Ricoh Women’s British Open and a four LPGA titles. With Lydia Ko not playing at the Manulife LPGA Classic, all Jutanugarn needed to do was to make the cut in order to end Ko’s reign.
