Lydia Ko gets Trumped


When you're the world

number one and you're playing a tournament at Trump National Golf Club, it's probably hard to avoid the hosts.

Kiwi golfing star Lydia Ko led a training session for young players at Trump National in New Jersey, ahead of the US Open which will take place there in July.

Reigning US Women's Open champion Brittany Lang and 2007 champion Cristie Kerr joined Ko in the clinic where Ko joked about being a few days older than some of her students.

US president Donald Trump's sons Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jnr were also in attendance, spending time on the putting green with the 20-year-old Ko.

Trump National, which is in Bedminster, New Jersey, will host the US Women's Open for the first time in July. The same course will host the men's USPGA Championsh­ip in 2022.
