Lydia Ko, Only Kiwi in British Open Field

Lydia Ko, the World amateur number one, will be the only Kiwi in the field for the Women’s British Open at Royal Liverpool starting on Thursday, the 15 year-old Kiwi is in the high quality field for the last Major championship of the year. After her stunning win at the Canadian Open on the LPGA Tour last month, Lydia  took some time out, before hooking up with coach Guy Wilson in Liverpool last week.

The pair have been have been preparing at nearby Formby Golf Club, and then had their first glimpse of Royal Liverpool today, at the brutally tough links course, encountering a concoction of sun, wind and rain, as the links course showed some teeth while she played a practice round with Norway’s Suzann Pettersen, a former Major winner.

Lydia is under no illusions as to how tough this assignment is going to be;

” I reckon it’s one of the hardest courses I have ever played and it’s so different to what I’m used to it was very windy. On the first hole I hit my tee shot into the right rough, my second shot into the rough and my third into the right rough. I consider myself quite a straight hitter so it has got to be quite tough. We have a few links courses back at home but nothing like this. I’ll just be trying to play my best and hopeful I’ll be able to make the cut and we’ll go from there.”

For us Kiwi”s the opening round of the tournament starts on Thursday night (NZT). Good Luck Lydia.
