Lydia Ko has slumped to a share of 40th place in the Women's British Open.

The world No. 1 shot a two-over last round of 74 to finish on one-under but 15 shots behind winner Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand on the Marquess course at Woburn.

The 19-year-old New Zealander had earlier rounds of 74, 70 and 69.

It is Ko's fifth appearance at the Women's British Open, having recorded a best finish of third last year at Turnberry in Scotland.

She picked up STG11,431 ($NZ20,990) for her share of 40th.
