Hard & Fast: Following Super Duper Lydia Ko (And Kiwis At US Open)

While the US Open was going down on the men's PGA, Lydia Ko was in action at the Meijer Classic on the LPGA Tour in Michigan.

After narrowly losing in her last outing, Ko ended up tied-4th as she continues to put up consistent results. You already know how we gauge Ko's greatness and that's in her ability to finish in the top-five on a regular basis, if she isn't winning tournaments.

Ko shot rounds of 67, 68, 67 and 68, finishing on -14 and Ko only had a single bogey through all four rounds.

Korea's Sei Young Kim won the event, shooting -17.

Super Duper Lydia still leads the LPGA in prize-money, Race To CME Globe points (2,737) and she's still ranked 1st in the Rolex Rankings.

Super Duper Lydia also leads the LPGA in top 10 finishes (67%).

Of course, Super Duper Lydia still has the lowest scoring average on the LPGA Tour. Ko averages 69.313 with a nice lead on Ha Na Jang (2nd) who averages 69.778.

This is helped by Super Duper Lydia's ability with the putter. Ko averages the least number of putts on tour with 28.73 putts (2nd is Alison Lee with 28.81).

After a hot start, Danny Lee faded at the US Open and while Tim Wilkinson wasn't quite as slick as Lee in the first round, he also faded back into the pack. 

Lee shot 69 in the first round, before shooting 77, 74 and 74.

Wilkinson shot 71, 75, 75 and 75 to finish +14.

Lee finished tied-57th and Wilkinson wasn't too far behind him, tied for 61st on +16.

A combined seven (of eight) rounds over 70 wasn't going to be good enough to trouble the leaders, not when winner Dustin Johnson shot three of four rounds below 70.
