Lydia Ko Wins 2014 Marathon Classic

Can we just hand the 2014 Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year trophy to Lydia Ko now? Some people might say we could have reasonably done that on January 1st. Ok, it is true that theoretically…mathematically…somebody could still catch the Kiwi star, but after notching her 2nd win of her 2014 rookie season at the Marathon Classic Lydia is a country mile ahead of the rest of this year’s class. It was high drama at the end, though. Lydia nailed a birdie putt on 18 to put herself into the lead at 15-under after So Yeon Ryu dropped a 25-footer on 17 to tie. Once again a shot behind, Ryu needed a birdie on 18 for a playoff. She hit an approach to about 6 feet, giving herself a chance. But her putt was too fast and high all the way. Lydia earned not only her 4th overall LPGA win, she also passed the $1 million mark in career earnings at only 17 years old. Rookie of the Year? If she keeps winning, maybe she can make a run at Stacy Lewis for Player of the Year.
