Kiwi Lydia Ko Grabs 2nd Place At ANA Int.

April 7, 2021 by

Kiwi champion golfer Lydia Ko on Monday (NZ time) completed what had to have been the best round of her professional career to date as she made her way to a stunning 2nd place finish at the ANA Inspiration.

Ko shot a nearly unheard of 10-under on the final day of the first major of the women’s golfing year – a performance that saw her tie the course record as well as prompt Danish golfing great Thomas Bjorn to exclaim that the New Zealander could very well have just played the all-time best final round of a major golf tournament.

The Kiwi’s performance and 2nd place finish was Ko’s best feat successfully pulled off yet at a major championship since she finished in the runner up position at the Women’s PGA Championship back in 2016. That year’s PGA was the first tournament in a row where the New Zealander finished among the top three – a victory spree that included two major tournament wins: one at The Evian Championship in 2015 and the other at the ANA Inspiration in 2016.

Ko after her stunning performance on Monday told a prominent golf broadcaster/publication that she didn’t think that she would have at any point been able to pinpoint an exact moment of knowing that the round she was playing was going to mean a strong finish. Instead, especially with a course such as the one at the Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California, every shot until the final hole could have shifted the outcome, she explained.

Ko’s next major looks set to be a berth at the US Women’s Open at the beginning of June.
