HER name is Lydia Ko. How amazing is this girl? Not only did she win multiple times on the LPGA Tour as a 15 year old amateur, she went ahead and won this past weekend in her 2nd event as a pro. On Sunday, she took home the Swinging In Skirts (unfortunate event name) World Ladies Masters in Taiwan by 3 shots. It’s not an LPGA event, but, many of the top players participated. She’s only 16 and has 3 wins. That’s one more than Michelle Wie and two more than Natalie Gulbis, both far more well known.
Did I mention that she is only 16? Really impressive. I think we might be watching the start of an unprecedented career.
She’s not even verified on Twitter yet?!?!
Is she the next dominant golfer? We’ve had players dominate individual years but no one really has dominated over a number of years since Annika on the LPGA tour. Lydia could be the next Tiger, LPGA version.
