Women’s PGA Championship

Lydia Ko is attempting to win her third major in a row in the US Women’s PGA being held at Sammamish, Washington State.

Unusually for Ko she led at the end of the third round on 1 under. She was one of only three players to be under par on a challenging course and was one of two players to be on or under par for each of their three rounds (Brittany Lincicome was the other).

Early in the last round Ko holds a one shot lead (after 3 holes) on 3 under but the leaderboard is close, with 4 players currently one shot back and further 5 players 2 behind.

Ko is good enough to win, but in gold it’s always possible for players to have outstanding days and surge through, and it’s not uncommon for leaders to have bad days and drop back.

By the look of the number of under par scores so far today it looks like the course may be playing easier than it was over the previous three rounds.

  1. Ko is 3 shots clear after 8 holes on 5 under with seven players on 2 under.

  2. Canadian teenager Brooke Henderson caught Ko with a -6 round to Ko’s -4 so they are into a playoff.

    The winner will be the youngest PGA Championship ever.

    Ko has clocked up a few ‘youngest’ records but Henderson is a few months younger.

  3. On the first playoff hole Ko made the green with her second shot but has a tough putt.

    Henderson’s shot was on target and looks to be an easy put to birdie, so the pressure is on Ko.

  4. Ko parred only, Henderson held her nerve to birdie and win. Ko was first to congratulate her.
