Lydia Ko’s win at the CN Canadian Women’s Open has taken the golf world by storm. But to her coach Guy Wilson, who has watched her precocious rise since she was 8 years old, it is a progression of the work they have done together. Ranked #1 in the world as an amateur, Lydia has shot into the top 50 of the Rolex Rankings (8.27.2012), sitting at #45 among the world’s best pros. And to be honest, she’s deserving of even a better ranking than that.
