Nelly Korda has retaken the No. 1 spot in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings entering the Pelican Women’s Championship this weekend.

She surpasses Jin Young Ko, who vaulted to No. 1 after the BMW Ladies Classic in late October. Korda first took the top spot following her win in the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in June.

Movement elsewhere in the rankings pushed Korda to the top by a very slim margin entering the final two tournaments of the season. Currently, Korda has played 48 tournaments to Ko’s 52. As a result, Korda’s average point total is 9.0322 compared to Ko’s 9.0279.

Lydia Ko, who won the Aramco Saudi Ladies International over the weekend, moved from seventh to fifth in the recent shake-up.
