After Lydia Ko notched her 20th career LPGA title at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions on Sunday, it’s interesting to note what rare air that is on tour these days.
Ko won 14 titles on the LPGA as a teenager, and has endured a number of grueling droughts in her 20s.
The 26-year-old now sits only one point away from qualifying for the LPGA Hall of Fame, believed to be the toughest Hall to get into in all of sports.
At her home club of Lake Nona, Ko became the 29th different player in LPGA history to earn at least 20 official wins. She moved into a tie for 27th with Laura Davies and Cristie Kerr on the all-time official career wins list.
Here’s a look at who has the most LPGA titles among active players, noting that several ahead of Ko haven’t been too “active” in recent years:
Webb didn’t compete on the LPGA in 2023, but she did play three times in 2022. The 49-year-old Aussie legend turns 50 at the end of the year and it wouldn’t be surprising to see her play in more LPGA events down the road as she gears up for the U.S. Senior Women’s Open. Webb won the 2022 Senior LPGA Championship.
Currently on maternity leave, Park’s future on the LPGA remains unknown. The LPGA Hall of Famer last won on the LPGA in 2021. She made 15 starts in 2022. Park and husband G.H. Nam welcomed a daughter last April.
Davies was pretty down on her game at the end of 2023, but left the door open to compete in one last AIG Women’s British Open as her exemption runs out after this year. The 60-year-old made a handful of starts last season on the LPGA, missing the cut in each. She withdrew from last year’s AIG with injury.
Kerr’s 20th LPGA title came in 2017 in Malaysia, 15 years after her first. The 46-year-old mother of two made 10 starts on the tour last season, making the cut three times.
