Ko looking to defend title in California
RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) Lydia Ko remembers holding her arms above her head in a heart shape when she leaped into Poppie's Pond last year. The New Zealand teenager had to watch the video to learn she also held her nose for the winner's traditional plunge at the ANA Inspiration.
"I might be one of the only players to hold my nose," the world No. 1 said with a grin. "I must have been scared of the water going up my nose."
Ariya Jutanugarn didn't get to make that leap because she blew a two-stroke lead with bogeys on the final three holes of the Dinah Shore Course last year.
