The GWAA announced on the 11th that “Lydia Ko won 79.5% of the votes, beating Lee Min-ji (27, Korean-American) and Ataya Titikkun (20, Thailand).” This is the second time Lydia Ko has been named the GWAA Player of the Year after 2015. Lydia Ko earned three victories, including the CME Group Tour Championship, the final round of the LPGA Tour season last year. On the LPGA Tour, she won the Player of the Year award, the lowest stroke award, and the money crown. 토토사이트
