RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (April 7, 2013) -- 15-year-old Lydia Ko took home low amateur honors at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. It’s the third time in the last four majors Ko has done that. She didn’t play in last year’s Wegman’s LPGA Championship.
“Low am was one of my goals coming in, so I’m very happy and excited to get low am,” Ko, a 3-time winner of professional women's events, said.
Ko began the day in a tie for 39th, but shot a final-round 69 to climb into a tie for 25th. It was her best round by two shots. From Rancho Mirage, Ko heads to Hawaii to play the LPGA LOTTE Championship, the next event on the LPGA schedule.
