CLEVELAND -- Lydia Ko won the U.S. Women's Amateur on Sunday, beating Jaye Marie Green 3 and 1 in the 36-hole final at The Country Club.

Ko, the South Korean-born New Zealander who tops the world amateur rankings, won at 15 years, 3 months, 18 days to become the second-youngest winner in tournament history. Kimberly Kim was 14 years, 11 months, 21 days when she won the 2006 tournament.
