A big day beckons for Lydia Ko, as New Zealand's teenage golf superstar makes her professional debut tomorrow morning when she competes in the LPGA's Titleholders Championship in Florida.

Ko is turning her attention to an improved performance, especially cutting out the double and triple bogies she thinks are holding her back.

"What I saw the big difference in Evian was, when I didn't make up the doubles I was way up position-wise so that was a big key," Ko said.

"Because a lot of the tournaments here are in warm, hot conditions, I've just got to not overdo practice, especially on the week, and pace myself."

The 16-year-old is paired with former teen sensation Michelle Wie for her long-awaited debut.
