Ko jumps up leaderboar­d


New Zealand’s Lydia Ko will head into the final round of the LPGA Mediheal Championsh­ip one shot outside the top 10 after a strong third round saw her improve nine places to sit in a share of 11th position yesterday. Ko is five shots off leader Min Lee at fourunder for the tournament after registerin­g a second successive score of twounder 70 at Daly City in California. Ko was satisfied with her performanc­e after mixing four birdies with two bogeys to move within three shots of second. ‘‘Yeah, I felt like overall I played pretty solid,’’ she said. ‘‘Got a few loose ones out there, but I feel like no matter what round you have you feel like you could have done better. Even though the wind has been a little bit calmer than I would’ve expected, the course itself is pretty tricky.’’
