Ko recovers from horror start, but still sunk
It just wasn't Lydia Ko's week.
The Kiwi tread water through the first three rounds of her Canadian Open defence and for a while this morning looked to be sunk at the London Hunt and Country Club in Ontario.
Ko shot a four-over 76 in her final round, though that included an impressive recovery after a horrific start.
The 17-year-old started the final round in a tie for 33rd, but started with a triple-bogey seven. She followed that up with a par then four straight bogeys and was reeling at seven over par through six holes. She did recover and played out the rest of her round in three under.
Her four-over round dropped her back to one under and at the completion of her round was in a tie for 56th.
Korean So Yeon Ryu was on track for victory. The 2011 US Open champion was at 23-under through 10 holes and enjoying a five-shot buffer from countrywoman Na Yeon Choi.
