On the final day, today, things started to go wrong for Kim Hyo-joo, including a triple bogey on the 14th hole, allowing Ko to take the lead for her second major of the year. Kim ended in joint second place, two shots behind, sharing the position with Jennifer Kupcho (US) and Shanshan Feng (China). Ko is now #1 in the Rolex rankings.
