Lydia Ko strikes Mckayson deal

Female golf star Lydia Ko has signed a three-year apparel agreement with South Korean sportswear brand Mckayson.

As part of the agreement, the two parties will work together to create the Mckayson LK line of golfing apparel. Ko will help design the range, which will be showcased when she next competes at the Women Australian Open.

The financial details of the partnership have not been released. 

Mckayson is also sponsoring the 2017 New Zealand Women’s Open, which takes place between 28th September and 1st October.

At just 19, Lydia Ko is ranked as the world’s number one female golfer. In 2016 she won the ANA Inspiration - one of women's golf’s five major tournaments - and won a silver medal at the Rio Olympics.
