Ko eyes bounce-back win in Ohio

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 13/07/2016

Lydia Ko © Donald Miralle/Getty Images Lydia Ko Lydia Ko gets a chance to put final-round disappointment at the US Women's Open behind her when she lines up at a favoured LPGA venue this week.

World No.1 Ko won the Marathon Classic in Ohio in 2014 and placed in the top-10 at her two other starts at the Highland Meadows Golf Club.

The New Zealander will be after more of the same, coming off a third-place finish at they year's third major in California last week.

Ko, 19, led through 54 holes but a mid-round meltdown on Sunday cost her a third career major title.

She has been paired for the first two rounds in Sylvania with US Women's Open champion Brittany Lang of the United States, who at 30, ended a trend of young winners on this year's Tour.

Before her breakthrough win, the average age of an LPGA winner in 2016 was 21.5.
