Lydia Ko casually announced that she is turning pro, while she was filming a video clip for YouTube. The clip was aimed at casual golfers, in an attempt to get them to join a club. Her co-star was Israel Dagg, who is an All Black rugby player in New Zealand. Apparently the pair have struck up a close and public friendship, exchanging comments via Twitter and Facebook. I wish good fortune to Lydia in her career, and trust t hat her friendship with Israel will not distract her from focusing on her golf. There are some recent examples of golfers going of the boil when they get entangled with the opposite sex.
