World No 1, Ko Jin-young Out With Injury Till October
World No 1 Ko Jin-young will be unavailable for the defense of her Portland Classic title this week due to a wrist injury, but she is hopeful of a return next month in South Korea.
“Jin-young is sitting out the next few weeks under medical advisement for ‘an overworked wrist’,” said a statement from Ko’s management team.
“She hopes to return at the BMW Ladies Championship.”
That timetable would mean Ko will also be unavailable to defend her title at The Ascendant LPGA Tour event in Texas in two weeks but return for the BMW, where she is also the defending champion, in her homeland from 20-23 October.

Victory for Ko would put her in a position to retain her title in the season-ending Tour Championship on 17-20 November at Naples, Florida.
This season, the 27-year-old Korean won in March in Singapore and has three top-five finishes, but she missed the cut in her two most recent events, the Women’s British Open and Canadian Open.
After playing it last year at nearby Oregon Golf Club, the Portland Classic will return to its long-time home course Columbia Edgewater Country Club.
