Lydia Ko is proudly ours- a kiwi sporting icon. But what is her story, what made her so amazing so young? What influence has Korea had on her career, why did she move to New Zealand? How come she is such a cool cucumber that despite the pressures of being Number One in the world- she can still be 19 and have a bit of a giggle. I like her- I think we all do!
I am so excited to read a book with all the answers to Lydais story!
Lydia Ko’s ascendency to
the top of the women’s golf world has been stunning. The youngest
player of either sex 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 1 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 Ko a fun-loving attitude
that still sets her apart today.
Written by sports journalist and
devoted golf fan Michael Donaldson, this respectful portrait unlocks the
secrets of one of the golf world’s hottest talents
