Starting the day in 48th after an atrocious third round, Ko was again under fire after opening with a bogey on the first hole.

However, a third hole birdie meant that Ko would finish her front nine holes at an even par, attempting a late surge up the leaderboard.

Another birdie on the 11th aided Ko's cause, before that was cancelled out by a bogey on the 12th. Ko would make even par for the rest of the round, finishing her tournament +3.

Overnight leader Jin Young Ko is still the woman to beat on day four, currently with a two-shot advantage over the chasing pack.
