Lydia Ko, fresh off her 100th LPGA top 10, hopes to play freely at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship


BETHESDA, Md. — Lydia Ko landed her 100th top 10 finish on the LPGA last week. The 25-year-old has made 210 LPGA starts since 2014. She has only missed the cut a dozen times in her career.

The former No. 1 is playing the game for a fourth straight week at the KPMG Women’s PGA and said she was unaware of the milestone.

“When I play there, I don’t really think about it,” she said. “Top 10, obviously, is a great result and something I’ve been trying to aim for for many weeks. It was more, yeah, I played really solid last week and got going rather than, whoo -hoo, my 100th top 10.”

Ko, a two-time major winner, won the Gainbridge LPGA in Boca Rio in January for her 17th LPGA title. She’s finished in the top five in each of her last three starts, including a fifth-place finish at the US Women’s Open. She is currently leading the circuit in making medium and sand saves.

Ko said instructor Sean Foley called her every morning during the Women’s Open at Pine Needles. Most of the time they are not “super technical”.

“It’s going to be kind of the same as the US Women’s Open having tentative lines, but being super aggressive towards those kinds of lines and being very committed to them,” she said.

“I think that’s when I can play the most freely. That’s all I can do at the end of the day, and I don’t want to be out there trying to control it. , and just put my 100% and see what I get.
