After winning her first title on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour, Bang Shin-sil, 19, has seen her world ranking jump significantly.
According to the Women’s Golf World Rankings released on Tuesday, Bang is now ranked No. 110, up 123 spots from No. 233 the previous week.
A rookie on the KLPGA Tour this season, Bang won her first title in three tries at the E1 Charity Open, which concluded on Aug. 28.
Bang began 2023 ranked 626th in the world and was ranked just 740th on April 24, the day before she made her first appearance on the KLPGA Tour. However, a tie for fourth in her first event, the Major Chris F&C KLPGA Championship, catapulted her ranking to 370th, followed by a tie for third at the NH Investment & Securities Ladies Championship, which boosted her ranking to 240th.
Bang Shin-sil, who tied for 17th at the Doosan Match Play Championship and is ranked 233rd in the world, jumped 110 spots after winning the E1 Charity Open.
If she continues this upward trajectory, it will only be a matter of time before she breaks into the top 100 and top 50 in the world rankings, thanks to her consistently high rankings despite not playing many tournaments.먹튀검증

Meanwhile, there was no change in the world No. 1-10 rankings, which include Jin Young Ko (28), Nellie Koda (USA), Lydia Ko (New Zealand), Lilia Boo (USA) and Minjee Lee (AUS). Kim Hyo-joo (28) is 10th and Jeon In-jae (29) is 12th.
