Congratulations to So Yeon Ryu who, with three tournaments to go in the 2012 LPGA season, mathematically clinched the Rookie of the Year Award.
How good has her year been? Well, she has 14 Top 10 finishes in 22 LPGA starts, including a victory at the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic. That's good stuff. As I write this, she is ninth on the money list and fourth in scoring average.
