At just 18, golfing phenomenon Lydia Ko has already racked up LPGA Tour earnings just shy of $5m and not to mention one of the game’s five major titles.

And to show how successful she’s been at such a tender age, the Kiwi teenager got her hands on her first car – and it’s an absolute beauty.

What’s more, she got it through the newest of her growing list of sponsors, Lexus, and no wonder she was so excited to receive this RC F Sports Coupe, worth just shy of £75,000. Ready to feel very envious?

Ko racked up six wins in 2015, five on the LPGA Tour along with ISPS Handa NZ Women’s Open, while one of those included the Evian Championship in September, her first major title, as she took apart the field winning by six strokes from American Lexi Thompson.
