Lydia Ko fails to break LPGA Tour record

New Zealander falls short after shooting a 1-over par at the ANA Inspiration

Kiwi Ko’s record-equalling run of 29 consecutive rounds under par on the LPGA Tour came to end when the world No 1 bogeyed two of her last four holes for a 73 and a level-par total of 144.

The 17-year-old, who has already won six LPGA titles, had a chance to dip under par after hitting a perfect tee shot down the 18th but her attempt to lay up with a six-iron failed as her ball ran through the fairway into a pond in front of the green.

Penalised a stroke, she hit her fourth shot to 12 feet above the hole from where she two-putted for a bogey six.

“It was 169 (yards) to the end of the fairway and it was still 20 yards after that with the rough so I thought a six-iron would be okay, even it flew out of there,” Ko told the Golf Channel.

“Obviously it wasn’t the right club. I would love to have had a birdie opportunity there.”

However, Ko was happy enough to have matched Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam’s record run of 29 consecutive sub-par rounds.

“You just go out there, try and have fun, try to shoot the lowest you can,” said the pony-tailed New Zealander. “Now it’s over but 29 is not too bad.”
