15-Year-Old Lydia Ko Wins THIRD Pro Title

The amateur will be playing the Kraft Nabisco next month on a sponsor's invite, but in the meantime she's won her adopted homeland's national championship.

The 15-year-old Korean-born New Zealander approached the last hole in a tie for the lead at 10-under par with American Amelia Lewis. But Lewis, in the penultimate group, three-putted from 25 feet for bogey and Ko, playing in the last group, made par to complete a final round 68.

Makes all the Michelle Wie American Media Hype look ridiculous.

Well done Lydia.

Time to retire Michelle.

Three professional wins. US and Aussie Am. She's 15. The best part? She is one of the nicest, most down to earth and humble kids you would ever want to meet,
Go Kiwi!

Was this on TV?
Everyone keeps talking about growing the game and how important women are to that. But very little is done to shine a light on the women's game and encouraging a fan base.

Abu Dhabi Golfer like you I too properly hate Americans.

If you're the real Paul Casey, I'm sure you don't really "properly hate" Americans. You had a disguised college career here while at ASU and learned a lot during your time in the States. We as golf fans appreciate your talent and I'm sure there's something that you too gained here. I'm hopeful anyway.
