'To be part of history is like a miracle,' said Ko. 'It's not something you can have by clicking your fingers.

'My driver and iron play were probably the nicest to me over the past two days. added South Korea-born Ko, who moved to New Zealand in 2003.

'I also putted well, but I was in good position on most of the greens because I was able to make approaches from good places on the fairways'
