Lydia Ko leads ISPS Handa Australian Open
By mustang6560 on 2/14/13
If winning her third professional event as an amateur last week at the ripe old age of 15 wasn't enough, Lydia Ko put herself in position to win her fourth at the ISPS Handa Australia Open.
Lydia Ko's record-breaking start to the Australian Open in Canberra today had playing partner and world No.1 Yani Tseng reaching for the superlatives as the Kiwi teen surged to the outright lead.

The 15-year-old produced another jaw-dropping performance at Royal Canberra as the world's leading amateur carded a magnificent 10-under 63 - the lowest round of her career -- to hold a one stroke advantage over Colombian Mariajo Uribe.

Buoyed by her history-making New Zealand Open triumph at Clearwater last Sunday, Ko is now on course for a fourth professional title - or at least a significant improvement on her 19th placing when the tournament was held in Melbourne last year.
The truly impressive part about Lydia's 63 was she bested playing partners Yani Tseng by five strokes and Michelle Wie by 11. Did you read the part about how she's only 15-years-old?

Someone should tell her golf isn't supposed to be this easy. Wait, on second thought, let's not say anything and just sit back and enjoy the fact we're witnessing history.
