Former female world number one golfer Lydia Ko entered the 15th, par5 hole after two swings of the driver – a tee, in which the second shot was from the rough.
Ko performed this impressive performance in the second round of the Mediheal Championship of the LPGA Tour at Lake Merced par72 in San Francisco, USA on June 11. She won the tournament in 2018, also at this stadium.
Hole 15 is 479 yards long. At that distance, the LPGA Tour rangers with two clubs can hit the green with birdie or even eagle chances. This stage, Ko just hit the bunker but the ball hit the rough on the left side of the fairway, 263 yards from the target. Instead of using a split iron to avoid trouble later, golfer Ko uses a driver.
New Zealand golfer “2 on” after the risky decision. Unfortunately, she only kept par because it took three putts to finish the hole.
There’s no reason to use a rough tee due to previous experience at Lake Merced. “When we talked about club selection, I told Caddy Derek that it’s not the first time he’s hit a driver in a position like that. Same as last time. I also took into account the possibility of a missed sweet spot. If it fails, it’s removed with a pitch. But three putts. closing the hole is quite embarrassing,” Ko said. Not finishing the second stage with 70 strokes, standing at T20 at -2 after 36 holes.
Yesterday, Ko also 70 strokes penultimate round, up to T11 (point -4) and five strokes from the top of the table. The first place belongs to Taiwanese golfer Min Lee.
Ko was born on April 24, 1997. Winning the 2012-2013 Canadian Women’s Open, Ko became the youngest and only amateur to win two events in LPGA Tour history since 1950. Over the next three years, she picked up 12 more titles, including two majors. .
On February 2, 2015, Ko became the youngest golfer to top the world rankings, including both men’s and women’s golf – OWGR and Rolex Rankings. The New Zealand player accumulated 104 weeks in this position.
However, after the 14th title – Marathon Classic 2016, Ko took two years to hold the 15th title – Mediheal Championship. From this victory, Ko passed 1,084 days of thirst for the LPGA Tour title and ended it with the Lotte Championship at -28 point in Hawaii on April 18.
