THIRD PLACE FINISH FOR KO ON LPGA TOUR

16/06/2018


Lydia Ko has risen to third place on the final day of the Meijer LPGA Classic on the LPGA Tour to continue her form in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Ko finished three shots behind So Yeon Ryu, but her consistency will be remembered after shooting a third successive round of five-under 67 at the Blythefield Country Club.

The new 21-year-old Kiwi was trailing the leaders by five shots after each day but clawed back two shots on Ryu with her final round, which included six birdies and her one lone bogey in the last three rounds.

On the 14th hole, Ko was just one shot shy of Ryu but that first bogey since day one on the 15th damaged any hopes of potentially winning the tournament as the South Korean world No 6 then fired birdies on the 16 and 17 to pull clear.
