Golf: Kiwi Lydia Ko continues impressive form with top-five finish

New Zealand golfer Lydia Ko has recorded her fourth top 10 finish of the LPGA Tour season after finishing  in a share of fourth place at the Women's Championship in Florida.

Ko shot a final round one-under 69 to finish eight-under for the tournament, six shots behind the runaway winner, South Korea's Sei Young Kim.

Kim - who won  last month's Women's PGA Championship major - shot an even-par final round to finish three strokes clear of American Ally McDonald.

The LPGA Tour now takes a week off before the Volunteers of America Classic early next month ahead of the US Women's Open in Houston.

Ko hasn't won a tournament since April 2018, but she's starting to discover the form which saw her once ranked top of women's golf under coach Sean Foley. 

The 23-year-old came close to winning the Marathon Classic in Ohio, but she blew a five-shot lead with six holes to play.
