NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 27/06/2016

New Zealand's Lydia Ko has eased to her 18th professional golf win, finishing three strokes clear of the field at the NW Arkansas Championship.

World No.1 Ko dominated a final-round duel with playing partner Morgan Pressel of the United States after they started the 54-hole LPGA tournament in a share of the lead.

Ko, 19, quickly opened up a four-shot lead and was rarely threatened as she closed with a three-under 68 to finish on 17-under, clear of Pressel and Candie Kung of Taiwan.
