Lydia Ko awestruck during Masters visit

LYDIA KO | THE MASTERS

When it comes to The Masters, it turns out world No.1 Lydia Ko is just as big a fan as the rest of us.


The 18-year-old Kiwi, who captured her second successive major title at the ANA Inspiration last week, had a memorable Wednesday at Augusta National, caddying for Kevin Na in the Par 3 Contest, before collecting the Female Player of the Year award from the Golf Writers Association of America.

And it turns out she was just as starstruck as the rest of us would be in meeting our favourite players, saying in an Instagram post: “It’s not everyday you get the chance to meet some of the best male golfers! Thank you very much for taking the time to talk and take a picture with me!!!”





After that, she got to meet The King, calling it a ‘huge honour’.





While in her role as caddie for Na, she also played the ninth hole in the Par 3 Contest. The result? She stuck it to 3ft. But that isn’t really much of a surprise, is it? Way to go, Lydia!
