  3. This is blowing up Twitter this morning... Keeping the jokes aside, what are your thoughts on this cover shot? What kind of a message does it send about the LPGA or about Lexi? Did she need to do this? Did GD need to do this? Or are we overthinking it?
  4. Okay, so that headline is a little sensationalized ... but it is pretty crazy (and at the same time very sane) for a 17-year old at the top of her professional sport, which she gets paid very handsomely to compete in, to be planning for her exit from the sport. --- [Emily Kay, SB Nation] Lydia Ko may be just 17 and on top of the golf world as the youngest player of either gender to reach the No. 1 ranking, but the teenager is already making plans to become a psychologist when she retires at 30. Preparing for Thursday's first round of the Women's Australian Open, Ko talked with reporters about working toward an online psychology degree while competing for major titles. For sure, the 2014 LPGA Rookie of the Year won't just kick back and watch her investments grow when she hangs up her spikes some 13 years from now. "I always say my plan is to retire when I'm 30 so I'm not just going to go to the beach and hang out for the rest of my life," Ko said at Royal Melbourne, where she'll face defending champ Karrie Webb and 18-year-old reigning Australian Ladies Masters winner Su Oh in the first two rounds. "There's always a second career that comes along with it and I'm trying to build up towards it and, because I'm playing a sport, psychology links well with it." Webb, a five-time Aussie Open winner, hit the gym during the offseason, which is something she did not have to do so much when she was younger. "It definitely makes you feel old when your rookie year was before they were born," the 40-year-old World Golf Hall of Famer said of her two opening-round playing partners. "When we're competing against one another I don't really see age as a problem or a difference. We all have the same goal, which is to get the white ball in the hole." With plans to begin studies at Korea University next month, Ko conceded that balancing work and school would be a challenge. Michelle Wie, a teen phenom years before Ko exploded on the scene, certainly found it so and took heat for letting college interfere with her game. "I have some big textbooks that I need to read," said the fan of psychological thrillers on TV. "It's going to be tough to juggle both things at the same time." While she expects that some of what she will study to be of little immediate use to her game, other aspects could help her become an even better golfer, which has to be somewhat frightening for her opponents. Ko has won eight professional tournaments worldwide and never missed a cut on the LPGA Tour. "I'm sure when I go to sports psychology or treatment, that's the part that will help me, but testing rats or whatever I'm sure that's not going to help me," said Ko. "But I think it's going to be fun. I like to watch like Criminal Minds and stuff like that so maybe it'll help me figure out what they're thinking." --- Okay, so she has 13 years to really make sure that retirement is the right decision. If it were me I would be simply enjoying professional golf while I could. There are no guarantees, and while that is exactly the reason you might want to have a back-up plan, she's in a position that if things went horribly wrong on tour for some reason, she has enough in the bank already to ensure that she could take the time required to carve out an alternate career... I just think this will be an unnecessary distraction at this point - but it's her life, and have to give her kudos for being so level-headed. BTW - she won the ISPS Womens Australian Open on Sunday.
  5. So, despite a meltdown of pretty epic proportions (by her standards anyway) Lydia Ko managed to do enough to secure LPGA World Number One status. Prior to this, Tiger Woods was the youngest to make World Number 1 at 21 years of age - so she's basically smashed that record by almost 4 years... I remember posting a thread about Lydia's announcement that she was turning pro late 2013 (for the 2014 season). I was one of many who wished her well, and I think the general consensus was that she shouldn't set her expectations too high, and that 2014 would be a year of gaining experience. Lets let the 2014 stats do the talking: 3 victories in 2014 (5 total LPGA victories) 15 top-10s in 2014 (24 total LPGA top-10s) $2,089,033.00 in prize money in 2014 26 events in 2014 without missing a cut (43 total LPGA events thus far, including as an amateur, without missing a cut) 47 rounds in the 60s in 2014 (of a total of 101 rounds played) Rolex Rookie of the Year in 2014 ... by a landslide... I'd say that classifies as experience! I heard one of the commentators during the coverage in the weekend say that off the course she is like any other 17-year-old, but on it she has the maturity of a 25 or 26-year-old. If she can continue to do this then she's likely to stay near the top of the game for a long time.
