17 year old sensation is in KL for Sime Darby LPGA

The 2014 edition of the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia promises to live up to its billing as one of Asia’s top golf tournaments following the announcement that teenage sensation and World No.2* Lydia Ko will feature in the new 75-player field when the tournament returns to the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club (KLGCC) from 9 – 12 October.

The 17 year old LPGA Tour Rookie confirms her participation on the back of her fourth Tour victory at the Marathon Classic, during which she shot a final-round 6-under 65 to beat Korea’s So Yeon Ryu by a single shot. The victory saw Ko become the youngest player in LPGA Tour history, at 17 years, 2 months and 26 days, to cross the $1 million mark in career earnings, helped by her eight top-ten finishes and two victories on tour so far this year.
