The secrets behind the golf world's most successful young star.

The secrets behind the golf world's most successful young star.

Lydia Ko’s ascendency to the top of the women’s golf world has been stunning. The youngest woman to win a golf major – and then the youngest player of either sex 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 17 and has cemented her dominance of the game by never finishing far from the top of the leaderboard.
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.
