In 2016, she became the youngest ever female player to win 2 major championships at 18 years old, and the second youngest golfer (male or female) to win 2 major wins behind Young Tom Morris after his 1869 Open Championship win.

 

This will be Lydia’s sixth appearance at the HSBC Women’s World Championship after placing second last year.
