The rankings that will help to configure both the American and European teams for the 2023 Solheim Cup, which will be played at Finca Cortesin from September 18th to 24th, are living a tense calm before the arrival of the first major of the year
While awaiting the arrival of the first Grand Slam tournament of the season, the Chevron Championship, to be played from April 20th to 23rd in Texas, USA, this week only the LPGA has entered the fray, with the LOTTE Championship presented by Hoakalei, won by Australian Grace Kim, since the LET will not resume competitions until May 11 with the Jabra Ladies Open, to be held at the French course of Evian Resort Golf Club.
In the tournament held in Hawaii, the best player eligible for the 2023 Solheim Cup was Sweden’s Linnea Strom, who finished in fourth position, while England’s Georgia Hall and France’s Celine Boutier continued their beautiful duel. Hall finished in sixth position and Boutier finished in thirteenth position, so she retains the first place according to the world ranking with just 11 tenths of a point over Georgia Hall.
As for the LET ranking, it continues to be led by the Swedes Maja Stark and Linn Grant, with Ana Peláez in the fourth position and Carlota Ciganda in the fifth position. As for the U.S. team, there have been no changes either. Although the best American golfer in the Hawaiian event was Lauren Hartlage, finishing in sixth position, Nelly Korda continues to lead the American Women’s Tour ranking ahead of Lilia Vu, while the world ranking continues to be led by Jessica Korda, followed by Allisen Corpuz.
