Lydia Ko has been beaten by a record-equalling feat on the LPGA Tour.

Ko's finished second at the Founders Cup in Arizona, despite carding a stunning seven-under par final round of 65.

The world number one has finished at 22-under par, but five shots off the equal best 72-hole record of 27-under par recorded by Korea's Sei Young Kim.

Kim produced a 10-under final round of 62.

Meanwhile, Jason Day will move up to second in the men's world rankings after claiming the PGA Tour's Arnold Palmer Invitational by a shot.

Day's finished just ahead of Kevin Chappell at 17-under after a two-under final round of 70.
