There's no rest for the golf world number one Lydia Ko after winning her second New Zealand Open title in three years.

The 17-year-old heads straight to Singapore for the next LPGA tour event, which starts on Thursday.

Ko has won two titles in successive weeks, backing up her Australian Open triumph with victory in yesterday's final round at the Clearwater course in Christchurch.

Ko finished on 14 under par, four shots clear of the Australian amateur Hannah Green.

She broke the Clearwater course record in her second round on her way to victory.

Despite reclaiming her home title after losing it last year, Ko says she has no time to celebrate.

A crowd of almost 6,500 turned out to see Ko win the title she won two years ago and the teenager says that was something special.

Ko says there's nothing quite like winning at home.
