Ko climbs, falls

The Southland Times - - Sport -

Kiwi golfer Ly­dia Ko had an im­proved third round and climbed 15 places, but has also fallen two shots fur­ther back from the lead, at the fi­nal women’s golf ma­jor of the year – the Evian Cham­pi­onship, in France. An ea­gle on the par-five ninth hole at the Evian Re­sort Golf Club – the same feat she man­aged in her open­ing round – helped 2015 win­ner Ko card a tidy four-un­der 67 in her third round yes­ter­day. It was enough to pro­pel her from a tie for 36th into a share of 21st place, but af­ter start­ing the day eight shots off the lead, the 21-year-old found her­self 10 back from leader Amy Ol­son, of the United States.
