  • Lydia Ko takes a shot

She birdied there again in the playoff, but Ko almost holed out by hitting a 3-wood to within 3 feet of the cup before settling for the clinching eagle.

Ko matched the low round of the third day with a 67 to lead by two at 11-under par, one ahead of Jessica Korda.

"It's disappointing that I couldn't do better on the back nine". Lee, also 21, finished with back-to-back birdies, holing out from a bunker at 17 and ramming in a birdie putt at the last to post a four-under 68 that featured seven birdies. I know that my whole team and PXG and all my sponsors and family, they've been super supportive.

The New Zealand golfer Lydia Ko has broken her tournament title drought on the LPGA Tour in the US.

"It's insane, because I was 3-over for the day at one stage today and I said 'Hey, you just got to focus and you never know what's going to happen, ' " Ko said, according to LPGA.com.

"When that putt dropped I used to be like, 'Oh my God.' Loads of feelings, my entire workforce and my household have labored actually exhausting for this second".

This win will be remembered for the best three-wood of her career after stiffing it to two-feet from 234 yards to finish in style.

That's when she took out a 3-wood and smashed it. "I stated, "hey, you have simply bought to focus, you by no means know what may occur" - and I used to be capable of form of put my recreation collectively on the again 9".

No one worked harder than Ko.

"Sometimes self pressure is the biggest thing".

Having been a teenage phenomenon - who broke a succession records to dominate the world rankings - the New Zealander's past two seasons have been overwhelmed by a revolving door of changes, both in the caddying and coaching departments. Can you say depth of talent?
