Lydia Ko returns to the LPGA Tour this weekend, but it's one of the most prestigious men's tournaments that's on her mind.

Ko will tee it up at the Founders Cup in Arizona this weekend after having a week off.

But, next month the world number one will attend the Masters at Augusta, where she'll be awarded the Golf Writers Association of America Player of the Year award.

Ko says she can't wait to go to Augusta.

She says she's just excited to see the whole vibe of the place and she wants to experience it all for herself.

Ko tees off in the first round in Arizona just before 9am tomorrow.
