Lydia Ko is all smiles after claiming a silver medal in the women's golf. With an ace on the fourth hole and nine birdies, she shot a course-record 62 to move into a tie for 16th place. I've got myself a little closer to where I want to finish.
"Especially after what happened the first day I am pretty pleased with where I am", Meadow said.
'I missed it!' - why did Lydia's Ko high performance manager miss her hole in one?
Park put a cherry on top of her brilliant week in Brazil by firing her third 66 of the tournament.
Former No.1 Park birdied three of the opening five holes in a stunning start to her final round at the Marapendi course.
"I enjoyed it. I could experience what it's like to play in the Olympics and I definitely would like to compete in the next Olympics in Japan", she said.
But she still managed a one-under-par 70 for the day to remain in pole position at 11-under overall. Piller has rounds of 69-67-68 for a nine under par 204.
Feng had looked the likely silver medallist all afternoon, but played holes 12-17 one over while others, notably Ko, advanced.
"I wanted to do my best because it's not just another week".
The last time a women s event was staged was 1900, when the United States of America s Margaret Abbott won a nine-hole tournament at the Paris Games.
Park won two majors in 2015 to establish herself as one of the best players in the history of the women's game, her British Open success securing a career grand slam.
She says it feels like she's shot a 10-under par round as everything was falling into place.
On a hard day which saw only 10 players return sub-70 scores, contemporaries Ko and Oh stood out with their mid 60's results, Ko's built on the back of an incredible ace at the par-3 8.
The soccer championship is the headline event Saturday in the Rio Olympics on a day that features a full slate of track and field competitions, the USA women basketball team vying for another gold and a Hall of Fame golfer pulling off an impressive comeback.
The timing of Ko's first hole-in-one could not be more propitious, with the women's Olympic competition reaching a thrilling climax. Park won the gold medal.
"I would have loved to, like, done a dance or jumped up and down, but in that situation, I think I was nearly trying not to cry, and then I realized, hey, I've got 11 more holes, get out of it". It is the final Olympic game for Tamika Catchings, who is retiring at the end of the WNBA season.
The women's event, however, has attracted all of the game's top players.
