New Zealand golfer Lydia Ko has made a horror start to the British Open, the year’s final women’s major.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL - JANUARY 19: Lydia Ko of New Zealand tees off on hole 16 during the third round of the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions on January 19, 2019, at Tranquilo Golf Course at Fours Seasons Orlando in Lake Buena Vista, FL. (Photo by Roy K. Miller/Icon Sportswire)


The former LPGA world number one carded an opening round four over par 76 to be tied for 123rd, 11 shots behind the leader South Africa’s Asleigh Buhai.

Ko’s single birdie not enough to compensate for the three bogeys and a double bogey at Milton Keynes.

This comes after the kiwi golfer missed the cut at the Evian Championship last month.
