The International Crown team lineup will be set in April! So it's time to start tracking who will make the team.
Currently, based on world ranking, here is the team:
5 Jin Young Ko 5.80 8 In Gee Chun 4.68 9 Hyo Joo Kim 4.32 14 Min Ji Park 3.35
Some interesting factoids: - Korea is of course the defending champion. The only player from that team who might return is In Gee. - No KLPGA player has ever played on the team, but Min Ji is in a good position to do so. However, she won't play much if any golf before the teams are chosen (unless she plays outside the KLPGA).
Here are the players who still are close enough to make the team: 20 Hye Jin Choi 3.10 24 Sei Young Kim 2.83 32 Su Ji Kim 2.40 37 Jeongeun Lee6 2.20 38 Inbee Park 2.19 * (but will probably be out of action due to maternity leave)
It's some mark of how poorly the LPGA golfers played last year that only four additional ones are in the top 40, and one of them was rookie Choi.
Doubtful they can make it, but you never know:
45 So Mi Lee 2.06 46 Yewon Lee 2.02 47 A Lim Kim 1.99 50 Hae Ran Ryu 1.94
