Former world No.1 Lydia Ko wins first title since 2016
It was perhaps no surprise that Lydia Ko wiped away the tears after clinching a dramatic playoff win.
The former world No.1 had not tasted victory for nearly two years, but the New Zealander produced what she described as the best shot of her career to clinch the LPGA Mediheal Championship in California Sunday.
In 2015, aged just 17, Ko became the youngest player to top the rankings, but prior to Sunday, she had not won a tournament in 43 events — since the Marathon Classic in July 2016.
“I think this is definitely one of the most special wins in my whole entire career obviously – – it’s been a while since my last win so to be able to be back inside the winner’s circle is a nice feeling,” she told CNN Sport.
“To have my family there and some of my friends — I’ve never been that emotional before”
