Kiwi golfer Lydia Ko's not one to shy away from the camera.

When the 16-year-old turned pro last year, she used YouTube to make her announcement. In the comical video made with All Black star Israel Dagg, the rugby player pestered Ko around a golf course to go pro. In the end she did.

Since then, her career has undergone considerable change. She's signed new sponsors and controversially sacked her long-time coach Guy Wilson in favour of David Leadbetter.

Among her new sponsors is golfing brand Callaway who speak with her here on film about what she hopes to get out of 2014.
