New Zealand amateur Lydia Ko is well off the pace at the final round of the US Women's Open at the Sebonack Golf Club in New York.

Ko finished up as the second amateur in the field, two shots behind the United States' Casie Cathrea, after firing a par round of 72 today (New Zealand time).

It is the first time in five golf majors,  Ko has been unable to secure top amateur honours.

She is currently tied for 36th overall, carding an 11 over total of 299.

She's still working towards it, within three years

It may be longer than we think, within five years

The expectation might be too much, maybe never
