Lydia Ko has finished tied for fifth at the Manulife Classic following a strong finish in the latest LPGA Tour event.

Ko, who shot a 64 yesterday, recorded a final round four-under 68 to finish the tournament at 14-under.

Germany's Caroline Masson leads the tournament in the late stages at 16-under.

Ko recorded an eagle on the 12th hole following three birdies in four holes to make a charge up the leaderboard.

The world number one retained the top spot in the CME Race to the Globe season rankings with Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn also finished tied fifth.

Ko now heads to the final major of the year, the Evian Championship where she is the defending champion.
