Ko managed to fire a bogey-free to hit the front. This was nine and under and this lifted her shot of being able to face the defending champion. You also have Lexi Thompson who is an overnight leader as well. She’s three off-the-pace and this is going to lead them into the final LPGA Tour of the year.

This is especially the case when you look at the runner up finish.
