Lydia Ko needs only two more points to qualify for the LPGA Hall of Fame. At 25 years old, she’s tracking to become the youngest player to achieve that milestone.
Seven-time major winner Inbee Park holds the current record. She was 27 when she fulfilled the requirements. Karrie Webb was the youngest to reach the 27-point mark at age 25, but because of the 10-year service requirement the LPGA had in place until last year, Webb became officially eligible at age 30. Se Ri Pak was 26 when she reached 27 points but was 29 when she was inducted.
To be eligible for the LPGA Hall of Fame, players must have won or been awarded at least one of the following: LPGA major, Vare Trophy for lowest scoring average or Rolex Player of the Year.
They must also amass 27 points with:
one point for each LPGA official tournament win
two points for each LPGA major tournament win
one point for each Vare Trophy or Rolex Player of the Year honor earned.
An Olympic gold medal is also worth one point as of last year
Here’s a list of active stars and where they stand on the march toward 27:
