Ko may turn pro as early as November

11:51 am on 18 September 2013

New Zealand's young golfing star Lydia Ko has arrived back in the country after her latest achievement on the world stage.

Ko finished second at the Evian Masters in France at the weekend, her best ever result in a major, and also the best ever for a local female golfer at a major.

The 16-year-old is now talking about turning professional as early as November, but says school is her main priority now that she's back.

And Ko says she's growing tired of facing constant questions about when she'll turn professional. Journalists keep asking her and yet nothing much changes between each interview.

Ko says she may be pro the next time she plays, but she may not too.
