Well, a week after claiming victory at the LPGA’s ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open, Lydia Ko has gone on to win her second tournament in two weeks by storming to a 4 shot win in the NZ Women's Open last weekend.

"This is even better than I would ever have imagined," said Ko, who carded a course record 61 in the second round.

Winning an Open from anywhere is a special feat. When you get to do it at home, it becomes memorable. Congratulations again Lydia. @Lko424

Motocaddy Launches Hi-Tech Remote Control Trundler

New S7 model boasts ‘super intelligent’ hands-free control technology

Motocaddy, the market-leading electric golf trolley brand, has launched its first remote control model boasting one of the most sophisticated guidance systems on the powered trolley market.

The innovative S7 REMOTE – which features the same frame design as the award-winning S-Series range – comes with a dual pressure control system that allows golfers to alter how much the trolley turns to the left or the right, simply by varying the pressure applied to buttons on the handset. As well as the dual-pressure directional buttons, the user can also control the trolley’s speed going forwards or backwards depending on how long they hold the respective buttons down on the remote control device.

To maintain stability in challenging terrain, the S7 incorporates a special mechanism that enables each of the two motors to help compensate for lateral slopes. It also features a rear anti-tip wheel, as well as a fully-rotating front wheel to allow the trolley to travel smoothly without requiring additional guidance.  A 50 meter cut-out function stops the trolley from going out of range, while a hibernation setting brings it to a halt if the remote hasn’t been touched for more than 45 seconds.

Clever electronics also allow the golfer to switch between the remote function and manual control mode by holding down the on/off button for three seconds.

In addition to its impressive remote control features, the S7 REMOTE also includes the brand’s patented USB charging port to charge GPS devices from the battery, plus a speed indicator and battery meter.

The S7 REMOTE has the added bonus of incorporating the two standout features from the 2014 range - QUIKFOLD and EASILOCKTM. One of the easiest assembly mechanisms on the market, QUIKFOLD allows golfers to fold or unfold the trolley in as little as five seconds thanks to a simple sliding catch; while the EASILOCKTM bag-to-trolley connection system removes the need for a lower bag strap, thanks to two holes on the S7’s bag support aligned with two removable locking pins on the base of any of the latest Motocaddy bags.

The new S7 REMOTE trolley (RRP $2,499) comes with a Motocaddy 20ah Lithium battery suitable for 18+ holes on a dual-motored model and will be available from April 2015 in black and alpine to follow in July 2015.
