Lydia Ko to attend Korea University, study psychology

Lydia Ko is college-bound, apparently. The 17-year-old has been accepted into Korea University and will attend for the 2015 school year, studying psychology, according to a report by Yonhap News Agency.

The university made the announcement, saying Ko had been accepted from a pool of applications submitted from outside the country. Ko's family immigrated to New Zealand from South Korea when Ko was 6 years old.

This doesn't come out of left field. In a June interview with, Ko shared tentative plans to attend college, similar to how Michelle Wie balanced attending Stanford and competing on the LPGA Tour when not on campus.

"I might go to a university in Korea," Ko said.

Ko just enjoyed the largest payday in women's golf history last Sunday, winning both the inaugural Race to the CME Globe and its $1 million prize, as well the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, Fla., which came with a $500,000 first-place check.
