Yes, Lydia Ko Is - Finally! - 18

We're writing this on Lydia Ko's 18th birthday. Wow. It's hard to believe Lydia is just now turning 18 both because she's been around so long and because of how much she's accomplished already.

Ko is the best female golfer on the planet, and she already has 10 professional wins (recapped here). There's no telling what heights she will reach - but there's also no reason to saddle her with expectations of becoming the all-time greatest (although that certainly seems possible, doesn't it?).

So let's enjoy Lydia Ko's last two years as a teen. Let's appreciate with wonder what she's already achieved, and look forward with great anticipation to what might still be ahead.

But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
