Having won the biggest payday in the history of women's golf, it's crucial New Zealand's world number three Lydia Ko now takes a break from the game, says her coach David Leadbetter.
Ko claimed almost $2 million in winning the LPGA's season-ending Tour Championship in Florida and finishing top of the tour's order of merit.
Ko won a three-way sudden death playoff that went to four extra holes.
She finished tied first with Carlota Ciganda of Spain and Julieta Granada of Paraguay after the final round in Florida.
The trio then entered the playoff with Granada the first to drop out after bogeying the second playoff hole.
Ko and Ciganda then tied the third playoff hole before the Spaniard duffed her approach shot on the fourth playoff hole, effectively handing Ko the title, who duly two-putted to claim the monumental payout.
Leadbetter says Ko now needs time off to get over some niggly injuries. "It's important for her and this is the thing that I've stressed with her and the parents is that she's got to pace herself."
"You've got to recharge your batteries every so often so as much as she loves to play and to practice it's good to put the clubs away and just forget about golf for a while and then get back to it nice and fresh."
The $1.9 million prize doubles Ko's career earnings at the end of her rookie season as a professional, in which she won three LPGA titles.
Meanwhile Leadbetter has confirmed Ko intends playing in the New Zealand Women's Golf Open at Clearwater in Christchurch in January.
