15-Year Old Becomes Professional Golfing Champion

KoLydia Ko of New Zealand is only 15, but she's already won a LPGA golf tournament. And it's not even her first! She also won a competition at the age of 14, becoming the youngest ever champion in that sport's history.

Currently the world's top-ranked female amateur golfer, Ko, 15, also became the tour's fifth-ever amateur champion -- its first since 1969.

The glove she wore during her final round will become part of the World Golf Hall of Fame's collection.

"I was most impressed with just her demeanor," fellow player Stacey Lewis told reporters in quotes carried by LPGA.com. Lewis is ranked second in the Women's World Golf Rankings.

"I mean you would have never known that it was the final round of an LPGA event. She played like she had been there before."
