LPGA Tour: Walmart Arkansas Championship – Lydia Ko

Powered by National Club Golfer

Who can stop the world number 1? She’s not long turned 20 but victory in the Arkanas Championship was her 13th career win on the LPGA Tour.

A final round 68 saw her set a new tournament record total of 17-under par and was the third win of the season for the New Zealander, who added the title to the Kia Classic and ANA Inspiration.

It’s the fastest she has ever racked up three wins and Ko was just too good for Candie Kung and Morgan Pressel. But she still said she had to dig deep and won despite a bogey on the final hole.

“I think the sun kind of got to me a little bit,” she said. “I could definitely feel the heat. I was kind of grinding out there.

“I hit the ball really well on the front nine but I didn’t hit it that well on the back, and that kind of happened for my second shot on the last hole. Not the most fanciest way to finish off a championship, but I’m just going to think of it as me bogeying another hole.”
