Historic Win for Lydia Ko

Lydia Ko made golfing history when she won Sunday’s Evian Championship in France as the youngest winner of a women’s major. The win was her fourth LPGA win of 2015 and the ninth of her career.

There were “a couple teardrops. I didn’t totally cry-cry. But I kind of got a little overwhelmed,” said Ko.

“There is an ease to the way Lydia Ko goes about her work. She doesn’t get too glad. She doesn’t get too mad. She doesn’t swing too hard. She doesn’t paint by the numbers, she paints the corners because she is, golf wise, far beyond her 18 years”, writes Bill Fields for ESPN.

“Ko finished on 16-under-par 268 – six shots clear of American Lexi Thompson”, as reported by CNN.

American golfer Lexi Thompson led Ko by three strokes. After birdying the ninth, 11th and 12th holes Ko could take the lead. Her final stroke a 20-foot birdie putt gave Ko the six-stroke victory.
