On Friday we brought you news of Lydia Ko’s inclusion in Time magazine’s 100 most influential people and just three days on from her 17th birthday, the New Zealander picked up victory at Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic.
Battling former world number one Stacy Lewis, Ko needed a birdie at 18 to secure the win. Her brilliant approach shot at the last setting Ko up for her sixth of the day.
And she duly delivered to finish 12 under par and seal her third LPGA victory. Ko’s win moves her to second in the world.
There was first-time winner on the PGA Tour as Seung-Yul Noh was victorious at the Zurich Classic.
The 22-year-old Korean’s final round 71 was enough to see him finish two strokes ahead of Andrew Svoboda and Robert Streb.
Keegan Bradley could only finish tied eighth following a final day 75, which included a triple bogey ended his hopes of a win.
To the Volvo China Open now where Alexander Levy held his nerve to win his first professional title.
The Frenchman’s score of 19 under par was enough to see off Tommy Fleetwood’s challenge and secure the trophy and this brand new gold jacket.
We finish on the Asian Tour where Anirban Lahiri was faced with this eagle putt in order to win the Indonesian Masters…
… Remarkably the Lahiri made it giving him his first win outside his native India.
That’s all for today, we’re be back tomorrow, in the meantime find us on Twitter @GolfingworldTV and we’re also on Facebook and Instagram. Bye for now.
