Lydia Ko rates her season as A+ already as she attempts to win a third straight title in the LPGA Swinging Skirts tournament.

The world number one has had a stellar start to 2016 with three tournament victories including the year's first major and the successful defence of the New Zealand Open.

Ko says considering her big focus is later in the year, she couldn't have asked for much more.

She says coming into the year, the Olympics were a huge goal and she just wanted to play with some consistency in the majors.

Ko's first professional tournament win was at the Swinging Skirts in San Francisco.
