World No. 1 Jin Young Ko to headline 2022 Trust Golf Scottish Open at Dundonald

By Matt Smith
Jin Young Ko, the double major winner and world No, 1 is heading to Scotland for the 2022 Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open at Dundonald Links from July 28-31.

Her announcment swells the ranks as fellow major champions Minjee Lee, Jennifer Kupcho and winner of the 2022 KPMG PGA Championship In Gee Chun are all set to tee up in Ayrshire.

Joining Ko in the 144-women field, the event’s strongest field to date, are former World No.1s Lydia Ko, Inbee Park and Ariya Jutanugarn.

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). She also claimed four top five finishes this season including tied fourth in the US Women’s Open earlier this month.

“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,” Ko said. “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.”
