Ko four shots off the pace in Thailand

10:40 am on 22 February 2014

New Zealand golfer Lydia Ko has climbed to within four shots of the lead following an improved second round at the Thailand LPGA.

Ko improved 14 places at the $1.8 million event in Chonburi courtesy of a two-under 70 to follow her opening-round 72.

The 16-year-old is among seven golfers on two-under, four shots behind outright leader Sweden's Anna Nordqvist on six under.

World No.4 Ko climbed inside the top-10 after shooting four birdies but bogeys on the 16th and 17th pegged her back.
