OCALA, Fla. (AP) Lydia Ko is one round from potentially making golf history.
The 17-year-old New Zealander birdied five consecutive holes and shot a 7-under 65 in the third round of the Coates Golf Championship on Friday to take the outright lead in the LPGA Tour's season opener.
If she hangs on Saturday, she would become the youngest golfer - male or female - to be ranked No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings.
