Projection error keeps Lydia Ko at No. 1 on LPGA Tour

The LPGA Tour said last week that projections from the world ranking showed Ariya Jutanugarn going to No. 1 because Ko didn't play the ShopRite LPGA Classic and So Yeon Ryu missed the cut. But the tour said Monday that the projections were based on the day they were calculated.

An oversight by the women’s world golf ranking means Lydia Ko is still No. 1.

The LPGA Tour said last week that projections from the world ranking showed Ariya Jutanugarn going to No. 1 because Ko didn’t play the ShopRite LPGA Classic and So Yeon Ryu missed the cut.

But the tour said Monday that the projections were based on the day they were calculated, instead of the day when the ranking is released. A tournament from two years ago was inadvertently included, which gave Ko an additional event. In the two-year formula, Ko has played 50 tournaments. The projection showed her at 51 tournaments.

The difference meant Ko stays at No. 1 by an average ranking of .01 points. Jutanugarn is playing the Manulife LPGA Classic in Canada this week and can become No. 1.
