The young New Zealand golf star Lydia Ko admits she's not at her best going into the New Zealand Women's Open at the Pegasus club near Christchurch on Friday.

The world number one amateur, who became the youngest winner of a professional golf event at the New South Wales Open last month, says she's feeling physically tired.

The 14-year-old says her schedule of five consecutive tournaments has caught up with her and she's tired after most rounds.

Ko has been made favourite for the Open.
