RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Lydia Ko could hear the cheers as she played the Olympic Golf Course, only they weren't for her.
Not yet, anyway.
The No. 1 player in women's golf played five holes about the time Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson were battling to the very end for the sport's first Olympic medals in 112 years. She did make it to the 18th green in time to see the medals, and she got a photo with Rose and his gold.
"Hopefully, his vibes came off to me," she said Monday.
