Golf: Lydia Ko officially turning professional

Related

Kiwi golfer Lydia Ko has officially confirmed she's turning professional.

The 16-year-old had flagged the move after the year's final major at the Evian Championship in France.

Her coach Guy Wilson has tweeted the news, saying it's been a long time coming but is definitely the right time.

Ko says she hopes to play a tournament in November as a pro.
