Possibly No. 1 Ingread, McCormack Medal Award… Going straight to next year’s US Women’s Open

Ingrid Lindblad (Sweden) received the Mark H McCormack Medal given to the best performing amateur female golfer.

The British R&A and the United States Golf Association (USGA) announced on the 17th (Korean time), “We selected Ingrid Lindblad, the world number one in amateur women’s golf, as this year’s McCormack Medal winner.”

After receiving her McCormack Medal, Lindblad will qualify for the US Women’s Open and AIG Women’s Open, major events on the LPGA Tour in 2024.

“It’s an honor to receive this medal,” Lindblad said. It is an honor for me to be listed with them, and I think it is a reward for all the hard work,” she said.먹튀검증

Lydia Ko received the McCormack Medal from 2011 to 2013 as an amateur, while Korean-American Lee Min-ji and Rose Chang, who turned pro in June, won the McCormack Medal. Lindblad was the first Swedish athlete to receive this medal.

Lindblad, who played against Louisiana State University in the United States, ranked first in the amateur women’s golf world rankings, and played a big role on the college stage winning 11 individual titles, including the 2022 SEC Championship. She also won the 2021 European Women’s Amateur Championship and tied for 11th at last year’s US Women’s Open, including a 66 in the first round, setting her all-time best amateur record.

The McCormack Medal is an annual award jointly awarded by the British R&A and USGA, named after Mark H McCormack, who founded the sports marketing company IMG, and is awarded to an amateur female golfer who has achieved the most outstanding performance during the year.
