The 22-year-old Thompson, who dropped one spot to No. 3 in the world rankings earlier in the week, celebrated her victory by becoming the first woman to engage in a venerable Indianapolis tradition: Swigging a bottle of milk and kissing the bricks at the finish line of the Indy 500 racetrack.
"There's just a lot of great vibes here", Ko said after her round. The only thing I can control is myself and hitting good shots.
Her victory also snapped a winning streak of five consecutive events by players from South Korea, the nation that leads the Tour with 13 wins in 2017.
She now shares the lead with American Lexi Thompson, who backed up her opening 63 with a second-round 66.
Making her first visit to Indianapolis, Ko has enjoyed the design of Brickyard Crossing, with Indianapolis Motor Speedway serving as the backdrop.
"I'm very happy that it was me", said Thompson. "Golf is a lot about confidence and just committing to yourself and believing in yourself, something I'm learning along the way".
"I'm all about driving fast", said Thompson "I got it up to 122 (mph)". I've had chances to win and I've played great. "Just hit a few bad shots with the bogeys, but I'm definitely not complaining". Southern Californians Collin Morikawa and Norman Xiong teamed up for a record-setting victory in the morning foursomes and then won their afternoon singles matches to help the USA take an 8-4 lead over defending champion Britain and Ireland in the Walker Cup.

One AK rifle, two AK magazines, one grenade, 23 AK rounds and a pouch was recovered from the encounter site, the police said. In September 2016, he had visited the state leading an all-party delegation and met people from various sections of society.
The New Zealander seems to have shaken the uncertainty which saw her miss the cut at the Canadian Open a fortnight ago.
Lexi shot a four-under-par 68 to finish on -19 under, with New Zealand's overnight leader Lydia Ko carding a disappointing level par 72 in Indianapolis.
After a hard few months, it was exactly what she needed.
"I just wasn't putting as well as I did the last few days and that makes a huge difference", said Ko.
Cristie Kerr reached the clubhouse in solo third at 10-under 134, followed by a trio at 9-under 135 -Marissa Steen, 2017 LPGA rookie Olafia Kristinsdottir and Moriya Jutanugarn.
"When you get into a good moment, that's when you kind of not focus on how many under par you're shooting and just go with the flow, and I think that really was happening in my back nine".
