Lowest rounds in women's major championship history

Lowest rounds in women’s major championship history


Lydia Ko shot a final-round 8-under 63 to win her first major at the 2015 Evian Championship. It's the first time in women's golf history that a champion has shot a final round that low. However, Ko's effort isn't the lowest round in women's major championship history. That honor belongs to 2014 Evian winner Hyo-Joo Kim.
