Auckland teenage golf star Lydia Ko has shot a second straight four under par 68 for a three-way share of fourth after the second round at the Australian Women's Open in Melbourne.

Ko, who became the youngest-ever winner of the Supreme Halberg award on Thursday night at 16 years old, is three shots off the leader Caroline Hedwall, after the Swede shot a sizzling seven under 65.

The other New Zealanders, Cathryn Bristow and Carolyn Bon, are well down the leaderboard, tied for 111th and 121st respectively.

Hedwall holds a one-shot lead over the first-round leader, Norway's Suzann Pettersen.
