Golf: Lydia Ko records top 10 finish at the Drive On Championship in Georgia

Lydia Ko has recorded her third top-10 finish of the coronavirus-ravaged LPGA Tour season.

The Kiwi finished in a share of eighth place at the Drive On Championship in Georgia, closing out with a tidy three-under-par 69.

That was good enough for a tournament score of 10-under, six shots behind from American winner Ally McDonald.

The result should see Ko jump to 13th in the overall LPGA Tour standings, as her career-turnaround continues after a frustrating two years of poor results. 

The tour takes a three-week break, before heading to Florida, as the build-up continues for the US Open in Houston in December.
