Should there be an age restriction for young golfers? Currently it's eighteen for women wishing to compete on tour. 

But what about the old adage ‘if you’re good enough you’re old enough'? 

Now that the authorities have given an exemption to the exceptional Lexi Thompson will the tour gates have to be opened a little wider? 

Down under, a 14 year old Korean born New Zealander; Lydia Ko, has just made history by becoming the youngest ever winner of a professional golf tournament.

Unfortunately her amateur status sees her winners cheque passed to the second placed (professional) golfer.

I’ve no idea what 14 years olds are into but she must feel a little bit miffed missing out on a shopping spree for some new clothes, make-up and boy-band tickets.

Still making golf history should be some compensation until a pre-teen golf star enters the record books.
