So Yeon Ryu added to her impressive rookie campaign by winning the 2012 Jamie Farr Toledo Classic. The South Korean native won the 2011 US Women’s Open last year as a non-member, earning her LPGA membership for the current season. She has quickly risen to the top of 2012 new members, currently far ahead of young phenom Lexi Thompson in the Rookie of the Year race. On Sunday, she had her career best round of 9-under 62 (par 71) to easily outpace the field at 20-under overall, 7 shots clear of second place Angela Stanford.

The question now is can anybody catch So Yeon Ryu for Rookie of the Year. Correction, the question is can Lexi Thompson catch her. She is the only player with a reasonable chance. Ryu holds a 403 point lead at 861 to 458. Nobody else even has 180 points. Even if Lexi gets hot, So Yeon has been so steady that it’s hard to imagine her not continuing to add to her total, eventually surpassing 1,000 points.
