      Golfer Lydia Ko has received New Zealand's highest civilian honor.

      She was included in the member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the country's New Year's honor list.

      Ko, who is active on the U.S. LPGA Tour, was considered a golfing prodigy as she was the world's top-ranked female player from February 2015 through June 2017. Her victory at the Evian Championship in France in September 2015 at the age of 18 years, four months and 20 days made her the youngest woman to win a major.
