New Zealand golfer Lydia Kohas won the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in California.
It is Ko’s sixth tournament victory and second as a professional.
The 17-year-old held a one shot lead going into the last hole and then sunk a 5 foot birdie putt to claim the victory.
Ko was second going into the final day behind tournament leader Stacy Lewis.
Ko takes home just over $300,000 for the victory. Not a bad 17th birthday present – as it was her birthday on the first day of the tournament.
Ko will move up two spots to No. 2 in the next world ranking.
