Lydia Ko slips away at Women's British Open

Kiwi golfer Lydia Ko has had another stumble at the Women's British Open in Fife, Scotland.

Having only just made the cut yesterday and starting tied for 65th, Ko started poorly with a bogey on the first hole, with another on the third to see her drop to +1.

Ko looked like she could turn things around, with a birdie on the sixth, but another bogey on the eighth meant she would finish the front nine two shots over par, and remain at +1 for the tournament.

Again the world number four looked to salvage some kind of turnaround, with birdies on the 10th and 12th holes bringing her back to -1, before another bogey - her fourth of the round - meant a return to even par.

Ko held her game together to finish the round with even pars from the next five holes, finishing at +1 and sitting even for the tournament, tied for 64th.

She trails the leader In-Kyung Kim of South Korea by a massive 17 shots.
