In the latest episode of Off Day presented by Callaway, VICE Sports goes alligator spotting in the Central Florida swamps with the world's #1 ranked female golfer
(BROOKLYN, NY) - VICE Sports today premieres the latest episode of Off Day featuring golf sensation Lydia Ko. At 18 years old, Lydia is the youngest golfer of either sex to ever be ranked #1 in the world. Between practice, school, and more practice Ko doesn't get much time off, so VICE Sports jumped at the chance to explore Florida with Lydia during one of her rare moments of downtime.
Presented by Callaway, this episode of Off Day finds Lydia heading out into the swamps of Central Florida with VICE Sports after hitting a few balls on the range. Joined by her friends on an airboat, Lydia spends the day spotting alligators and facing her fear of reptiles. Along the way, she opens up about the challenges of keeping up the active social life of a teenager while also maintaining the rigorous practice schedule of a top-ranked golfer.
VICE Sports' long-running Off Day series follows athletes off the field and explores the entertaining and bizarre ways our favorite athletes use their limited free time. The series gets a unique look at who our favorite athletes really are when they’re not under the glare of the stadium's lights. Earlier this month, VICE Sports caught up with golfer Andres Gonzales, sharing a few pitchers of beer at his favorite local haunt and finding out what it's like to be one of the most outlandish golfers on the PGA Tour.
