Ko says NZ can win the Espirito Santo world champs

7:14 am on 27 September 2012

The world's top ranked amateur golfer Lydia Ko believes her New Zealand side has a good chance of winning the Espirito Santo World Amateur Team's Championship, which starts tonight in Turkey.

The 15-year-old, who made international headlines as the youngest winner in the history of the LPGA Tour when she claimed the Canadian Open, is looking forward to re-joining her amateur peers Emily Perry and Munchin Keh.

New Zealand has never won the Espirito Santo Trophy - the best results were second placings in 1982 and 1990.
