Lydia Ko: Portrait of a Teen Golfing Sensation (Paperback)
Lydia Ko’s ascendency to the top of the women’s golf world has been incredible. The youngest player to win a golf major, and then the youngest player to go on and win two, Lydia Ko continues to amaze the world with her golfing feats. She became the number one women’s player at just 18 and has cemented her dominance of the game by never finishing far from the top of the leader board. This book reflects on the unique influences that shaped Lydia Ko into such a stunningly good golfer, from her move to New Zealand from Korea at the age of six to her parents’ nurturing approach and the young coach that instilled in Lydia a fun-loving attitude that still sets her apart today. This respectful portrait unlocks the secrets behind the golf world’s most successful young star and hottest talent.
