A horror final round of 78 has seen Lydia Ko plummet down the leaderboard at the Kia Classic on the LPGA Tour in California.

Ko's six-over effort saw her finish in a share of 61st at three-over for the tournament and she was well off the pace as winner Anna Nordqvist of Sweden finished the week at -13.

Ko's round today featured two double bogeys, four bogeys and two birdies as the 16-year-old mixed her form at the Aviara Golf Club.

This tournament was hardly the ideal preparation for Ko who will start in this week's first major of the year, the Kraft Nabisco Championship in California, as she bids to become the youngest winner of a major.
