Taipei, Taiwan (SportsNetwork.com) – Lydia Ko shot 3-under 69 on Sunday to win
the Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters in just her second start as a
professional.

The 16-year-old Ko finished the event, which featured four of the top seven
players in the world rankings, at 11-under-par 205 for her first win since
turning pro in October.

So Yeon Ryu (73) placed second at Linkou Miramar Golf & Country Club, three
shots behind Ko, while world No. 1 Inbee Park (70) took third.

Ko made her professional debut at the CME Group Titleholders on the LPGA Tour
in November, where she tied for 21st. She was granted full membership on the
LPGA Tour starting in 2014.

The Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters is a co-sanctioned event on both the
Taiwan LPGA and Korean LPGA tours.
