Two-time major champion and current World No.1 Jin Young Ko is set to headline the 2022 Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open this Summer at Dundonald Links, on July 28-31.

And she will be joined by fellow major champions Minjee Lee, Jennifer Kupcho and winner of the 2022 KPMG PGA Championship In Gee Chun.

The South Korean has spent four stints as No.1 giving her a total of 130 weeks at the top.

She first rose to the top of the Rolex Rankings in April 2019 after winning what’s now known as The Chevron Championship. Later that year she won her second major title at the Amundi Evian Championship and reclaimed the No.1 ranking.

The 26 year old is already one of South Korea’s most decorated female golfers with 13 LPGA titles, two LPGA Player of the Year awards in 2019 and 2020, and three LPGA Leading Money Winner awards in 2019, 2020 and 2021.

Ko began this season with a history making victory at the HSBC Women’s World Championship in February, which saw her set the LPGA Tour’s all-time record for most consecutive rounds in the 60s (15) and most consecutive sub-par rounds (30) of which she extended to 16 and 34, before an opening round of 2-over par at the first major of the year, The Chevron Championship put these streaks to an end. She also claimed four top five finishes this season including tied 4th in the US Women’s Open earlier this month.

Ko did not participate in last year’s AIG Women’s Open in Carnoustie, which means she will return to Scotland having not played on the Links since her debut in the Women’s Scottish Open in 2018 where she finished tied 3rd.

Speaking on her return to Scotland, Ko commented: “I haven’t been back to

Scotland since I first played in this event in 2018 so I am really excited to return in the summer.

“Even though links golf is tough, I really like to experience the different conditions that we don’t get in Korea or anywhere else in the world.

“I haven’t travelled much outside of Asia or America over the last few years, so I am looking forward to enjoying some Scottish food and beautiful scenery while I am there and also seeing how the event has evolved since I was last there four years ago.”
