Ko ready to go again in Thailand

2:41 pm on 21 February 2013

The New Zealand amateur Lydia Ko tees off this afternoon in another LPGA event featuring some of the world's best golfers, apparently having ironed out the problems that saw her drop to third place in last week's Australian Open.

The 15 year old sensation has a seeded draw at the Thailand Open alongside two Americans, the 18 year old rising star Lexi Thompson, and the veteran Juli Inkster, the winner of 31 titles in a professional career spanning 30 years.

The world number one Yani Tseng, runner up at last week's Australian Open, is bidding for her third straight Thailand Open title.
