Why, yes, Lydia Ko does have a tattoo on her right arm

You may have noticed something on Lydia Ko's right arm during her victory walk up the 18th hole at Royal Melbourne as she was capping off a win at the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open.

No, it wasn't Sharpie. The 17-year-old world No. 1 has a tattoo on her right wrist.

The ink is of the date she won her first tournament as a pro: April 27, 2014 when she took the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. It's in Roman numerals, however, so it looks like this: IV XXVII XIV

Of the occasion, Ko said, "My parents were there and I felt like it was a very memorable win so I got that tatted up."

Ko joins Bubba Watson as the only pros with visible tattoos. Watson has the name of his wife, Angie, tattooed on his wedding ring finger.
