SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) Now that she's officially a millionaire, Lydia Ko joked she'll have to keep a closer watch on where her paychecks go.
"I'll probably see that going into my mom's account," she said with a laugh, referring to the $210,000 she got for winning Sunday's Marathon Classic.
The 17-year-old broke free from a late tie with So Yeon Ryu, hitting a wedge to 4 feet for birdie on the 72nd hole to take the lead. Then she tried in vain - she's just 5-foot-5 - to see past the large gallery at 18 as Ryu missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff.
