Ko ends drought with playoff eagle

DALY CITY, Calif. - Lydia Ko hit a 3-wood to 3 feet for eagle to finish off Minjee Lee on the first hole of a playoff Sunday in the chilly LPGA Mediheal Championship

Ko won her 15th LPGA title and first since July 2016, a 43-event stretch marked by changes in instructors, caddies and equipment and a large weight loss.

''My whole team and my family, they've worked really hard for this moment,'' Ko said. ''I'm happy that a few of them are here and we can celebrate together.''

Five days after turning 21, the New Zealander won for the third time at Lake Merced after taking the Swinging Skirts LPGA at the tree-lined layout in 2014 and 2015.

''It's crazy because I was 3 over for the day at one stage and I said, 'Hey, you've just got to focus and you never know what's going to happen,''' Ko said. ''I was able to kind of put my game together on the back nine. When that putt dropped, I was like, 'Oh, my God.'"
