The flawless eight-birdie round was the low score of the week and she finished on 268, 16 under par and six ahead of American Lexi Thompson (70).
China's Feng Shanshan also shot 70 and was third on eight under. Ko is 18 years 142 days — 171 days younger than Morgan Pressel when she won the 2007 Kraft Nabisco Championship.
