TEENAGE RICHES

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Inside The Ropes -

Rookie 17-year-old Ly­dia Ko ( had the rich­est pay­day in LPGA his­tory when she won the sea­son-end­ing Tour Cham­pi­onship in a play­off. She pock­eted $1.5 mil­lion by also cap­tur­ing the sea­son-long Race worth a $1 mil­lion bonus. Ko is the youngest player to reach five ca­reer wins and the first rookie to sur­pass $2 mil­lion in a sea­son. Stacy Lewis be­came the first Amer­i­can since Betsy King in 1993 to sweep the Rolex Player of the Year Award, the Vare Trophy for low­est scor­ing av­er­age (69.53) and the sea­son money ti­tle.
