The youngest golfer to win a professional tournament, 14-year-old Aucklander Lydia Ko, says she has no plans to turn professional anytime soon.

Ko won the New South Wales Open yesterday by four shots but as an amateur is unable to accept the $24,000 in prize money.

Ko says she'll consider turning professional in three or four years although she's also focused on her education and would like to attend Stanford University in the United States.
