Ko builds on rise with 63, leads by 2
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Lydia Ko keeps taking steps toward the top of women's golf again, making birdies on half of her holes for a 9-under 63 Thursday and a two-shot lead over Danielle Kang in the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio.
Ko has been winning on the LPGA Tour for so long - she won her first title as a 15-year-old - that it's easy to forget she is only 24.
Ko, a 16-time winner on tour, has seen it all, from winning two majors and becoming No. 1 in the world, to watching her ball-striking, her results and her confidence plummet. She ended a nearly three-year drought by winning in Hawaii last year. She is back to No. 3 in the world.
