Former world No.1 Ko, in 12th place at the end of yesterday's third round, could only hit an even-par 72 in today's final round of action.

She thus finished with an overall score of three under.

Ko hit three birdies and three bogeys across an inconsistent round of golf, in what appears a continuation of her 2017 woes.

She had hit an impressive four-under par 68 in Thursday's first round, but couldn't back it up in the following three days.

The 20-year-old has not won an event for 18 months.
