The 13-year-old New Zealand golfer Lydia Ko fired a stunning five-under par 68 to move into the top-10 with one round remaining in the weather delayed Australian Women's Open in Melbourne.

Ko fired the joint second best round of the day to jump 25 spots to a share of 10th place on five-under par.

Her New Zealand Golf team-mate Cecilia Cho shot a third successive even par round of 73 to be in tied for 42nd place.

World number one Yani Tseng of Taiwan continued her brilliant form, firing a five-under 68 to move to 14- under par.

She takes a three shot lead into the final round over defending champion Jayai Shin of Korea.
