Top-ranked amateur Lydia Ko won the New Zealand Women's Open on Sunday for her third victory in a professional tournament.CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand -- Top-ranked amateur Lydia Ko won the New Zealand Women's Open on Sunday for her third victory in a professional tournament.
In an outstanding 13-month spell, Ko has now won the New South Wales Open to become the youngest player, male or female, to win a professional event; the Canadian Open to become the youngest-ever winner on the LPGA Tour; and now a professional tournament at home.
The 15-year-old Korean-born New Zealander approached the last hole in a tie for the lead with American Amelia Lewis at 10-under. But Lewis, in the penultimate group, three-putted from 25 feet for bogey and Ko, playing in the last group, made par to complete a final-round 68.
