Ko marks a landmark LPGA Tour with a strong finish

It was not a victory, but Lydia Ko reached a career milestone with another finish in the top 10 on the LPGA Tour today.

The world number four scored a final lap of 68, but lost the playoffs with a shot at the Meijer Open in Michigan.

Ko finished fourth in the 17-under with the Americans Nelly Korda, Jennifer Kupcho and the Irish Leona Maguire currently in the playoffs for the title.

This is the 100th time that Ko has finished in the top 10 of the LPGA Tour, 17 of which have been victories.

It was a decade of consistency for Ko to make the world first notice as a 15-year-old amateur with her maiden victory at the LPGA at the 2012 Canadian Open.

Today’s effort was Ko’s sixth top 10 for the season and third in a row, bringing her in good shape ahead of next week’s PGA Women’s Championship, the third big of the year.
