Lydia Ko has moved up to second at the World Ladies Masters in Taipei City, Taiwan, after her second straight four-under 68.

Ko, playing in her second tournament as a professional, fired five birdies and one bogey in the second round of the three-round event at the Miramar Golf and Country Club, to trail So Yean Ryu by one. There is a three-stroke gap back to third.

Ko got her round going in the right direction from the first tee, birdieing the first and second holes to get to -6 overall. A third birdie at the sixth saw Ko make the turn in second, before she added biries at the 13th and 18th holes, with the lone blemish coming at the par-three 14th.

First-round leader Inbee Park dropped back to third with a four-over 76, including a double-bogey at the sixth. Ryu posted six birdies and one bogey in her five-under 67.

Ko tees off in the final round at 3.50pm NZ time.

Would you be happy to pay for PGA Tour coverage online?

Absolutely. I'll do whatever it takes to watch golf.

It depends on how good the service is.

If it's not on TV, I won't watch it.

What? The PGA Tour's not going to be on Sky TV?
