Golfer Ko Jin-young could miss out on the LGPA Tour Championship this week due to injury.

The competition - boasting the highest ever prize money for a women's tournament - begins tomorrow and concludes on Sunday.

The 24-year-old has already missed out on two tournaments after injuring her ankle on November 1 at the Taiwan Swinging Skirts LPGA.

The record prize pot for the tournament in Florida is set at £1.16m.

Jin-young said that she's 'still worried' about her ankle and has only been able to train just one or two days as she is still in pain when she walks.

She will remain the tour's player of the year even if she cannot compete this week, having won four tournaments this year, two of which were majors.

England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff, Georgia Hall, Charley Hull and Bronte Law are among the 60 golfers who will be teeing off.
