Kiwi golfer Lydia Ko has climbed to the top of the standings for the LPGA season, after turning in another top-10 placing, finishing tied for ninth at the latest event in Daly City, California.

Ko shot a final round 2-under par 72 to finish six under for the tournament, eight shots behind Finnish winner Matilda Castren.

Ko's round included four birdies and two bogeys.

It's her sixth top-10 finish of the season and moves her to the top of the Race to the Globe points standings - where the top 60 golfers contest the lucrative end-of-year Group Tour Championship.

Ko won the Daly City event in 2018.
