Jin Young Ko wins Cognizant Founders Cup at Mountain Ridge
Jin Young Ko finished off a wire-to-wire victory in the Cognizant Founders Cup at Mountain Ridge Golf Club in Caldwell, NJ. It was her 14th consecutive round in the 60s that matched a 16-year record held by Annika Sorenstam.
Ko joined Nelly Korda as the only three-time winners on the LPGA Tour this season, and she became the fifth South Korean with at least 10 victories, still well short of the record 25 held by pioneer Se Ri Pak.
Ko successfully defended her title at the Founders Cup, though it was as different as could be. The tournament was held in Phoenix in 2019, was canceled last year during the pandemic, and then picked up a new title sponsor and moved to the Donald Ross design at Mountain Ridge.
There are currently no dates or location set for this event in 2022.
