She’s one of the most accomplished teen phenoms in golf history, and after her win in April at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic, 17-year-old Lydia Ko moved to #2 in the world rankings! Her jaw-dropping achievements at such a young age include her win at the 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open, where at 15 years and 4 months she became the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history. She then defended her win with a victory at the 2013 Canadian Women’s Open to clinch her second win while still an amateur.
Lydia was granted a special request to join the Tour last October, and made her pro debut at the 2013 CME Group Titleholders. The proud New Zealand native had previously won the Mark H. McCormack Medal three years in a row (2011-2013), recognizing her as the top amateur in the world. In April, she was also named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. We're going to be talking about Lydia's place in the game for a long, long time.
