Lydia Ko’a spectacular performances has surely taken the entire golf world by storm, so much, that golf pundits are already comparing her to none other than Tiger Woods.
In fact, according to many the 18-year-ols is even better than the golf legend.
7 LPGA wins & 3 top 10s at majors assures a bustling career graph for any LPGA golfer. But the thing is that the Kiwi star has just been permitted to cast her vote for 4 days.
Lydia won LPGA Swinging Skirts Classic for 2 year in a row in the playoff over Pressel (Morgan). She has now triumphed eleven times as pro & 7 of those were on LPGA Tour.
Pressel is just too impressed with the young Kiwi golfer.
“She is extremely impressive& she is there in the contention always”, stated Morgan. “At this tender age, she shows immense calmness & poise which is not so viable with other other kids at the same age.”
And, this why many feel that Lydia is even better than Tiger Woods. When Woods was of Ko’s he could not show up with any pro win & what more, he was not even any pro player that time. In fact, Woods was nowhere at Stanford at the age of 18 – in fact he was working for Plain Sailing when he was 18!?
Now, the Kiwi youngster certainly has a lengthy way to march on to reach up to Woods’ spectacular achievements on golf course but- one thing for sure- she is just on the right way.
Ko has played in as many as fifty LPGA championships so far both as a pro & amateur. She triumphed at 7 of them.
Tiger won his 7th PGA Tour championship in his fifty-first even as a pro or an amateur. But unfortunately, Ko’s achievements are somehow underplayed in golf world.
