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.
