U.S Woman’s Amateur Championship, Kiwi Lydia Ko in the final

Kiwi Lydia Ko, the 15 year-old holder of the number one position in the world amateur golf rankings, is the second-youngest finalist in  the history of the U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship . If she wins the title, she will also become the second-youngest champion. Both records belong to Kimberly Kim, who won in 2006 at 14 years, 11 months and 21 days. Lydia commented on her great achievement to reach the final of the prestigious competition

“I wanted to try my best and not be disappointed. It’s pretty awesome to get to the final because this is the greatest amateur event. I have a 50-50 chance, I’m pretty confident. Sometimes luck is with you, and sometimes it’s not.”

In the semi-finals Lydia defeated Ariya Jutanugarn, beating her 3 and 1, to triumphantly advance to Sunday’s scheduled 36-hole championship final. Lydia will now play Jaye Marie Green, 18, of Boca Raton, Fla., who is ranked No. 7 in the WAGR.

Jaye Marie said after eliminating 20-year-old Nicole Zhang, 2 up, in the other semifinal match;

“I’m really excited and blessed to be playing the world No. 1. Just knowing that I’m still in the running to be the United States champion gives me the chills. She hung in there the whole time. I really feel like I’m dreaming.”

Good Luck Lydia, New Zealand’s golfers are all cheering for you, I know you can not hear us but we are with you.
