At just 18 years old, Lydia Ko is the best women's golfer on the planet -- or, at a minimum, running 1 and 1a with Inbee Park.

The South Korea-born, New Zealand-raised teenager won the LPGA's Race to the CME Globe for the second time in a row in 2015, remaining the only player to earn the $1 million season-long prize in the concept's brief history. She won five times overall and became the fifth player in LPGA history to win the LPGA Tour's Player of the Year award in the season after winning the Rookie of the Year honors.

Ko is a kid at heart, having a lot of fun on and off the golf course. She shows that friendly side on her Instagram and Twitter accounts.

You should get to know and appreciate Ko, who is attending Korea University through a mostly online program, while you can. She only intends to play until she's 30.
