Dame Laura Davies believes Lydia Ko will struggle to match the achievements of the legendary Annika Sorenstam despite the incredible start to her career. Ko has already won 11 LPGA Tour titles at the age of 18 despite the presence of consistently strong fields, including a vast South Korean contingent led by current world No 2 and seven-time major champion Inbee Park.The teenage superstar is favourite to land her second straight major at this weeks ANA Inspiration in California, where she opened with a solid two-under 70 to lie just three off the early pace. Lydia Ko has already won 11 LPGA Tour titles before her 19th birthday This is one of the biggest events of the year for the ladies, and its basically our version of The Masters, Davies told Sky Sports. Its at the same course every year, and its a great place. As soon as you get through the gates, you feel the atmosphere, see the set up and you know its a major.Its such a top course. You get very long rough which you dont have every week, and its a course where the better players will win. You cannot get away with playing average golf, youve got to be on top of your game, and thats why Id pick Lydia Ko to win. Kos winning rate is outstanding considering the quality of the fields week in, week out Hopefully Charley Hull will have a good run, and Inbee Park finished second last week so I wouldnt be surprised to see her and Lydia fighting out another tournament.Lydia is just incredible. To put her achievements into perspective, I won 20 LPGA Tour events over 28 years, and shes already won 11 in three years and shes still only 18. A winning rate of four per year is extraordinary, and its so tough to be that consistent because every week sees a strong field. Annika Sorenstam won a remarkable 93 professional titles, including 10 majors The prospect of her keeping that up should be a little unrealistic, and I thought it would be impossible to match what Annika Sorenstam achieved in her career. But the way Lydia has started out, shes on pace to keep up with Annika. Time will tell if she can keep this going, and if she can, it will be astounding.She just doesnt hit any bad shots, and if she does miss the odd green, she gets up and down most of the time because her short game is so good. She literally has no weaknesses. Charley Hull is two years older than Ko and still looking for her breakthrough win in the United States, and Davies feels the Solheim Cup star will be a force to be reckoned with in the not-to-distant future.Charleys very young, exciting to watch and still so enthusiastic about everything, she added. Maybe she should be less aggressive and not keep going for the big shot all the time, but I cant really say anything because I used to play right on the limit! Charley Hull is exciting to watch, but Davies feels she needs to curb her aggression But thats the way Charley plays and its why I love watching her. Maybe she should back off a little bit, and she needs to make the odd extra putt that isnt dropping at the moment, and that is the difference between a solid top-10 finish and a win.When she matures a little more, I reckon in a couple of years shell be up there contending every single week. Charley is such a good ball-striker, and the fact that she hasnt been as successful as Lydia Ko is a surprise to me.Meanwhile, Davies is keen to host her own tournament on the Ladies European Tour schedule for the benefit of her new Laura Davies Foundation, while also helping to give British players a rare opportunity to play on home soil. Dame Laura Davies hopes to have her own tournament on the Ladies European Tour She said: My brother runs my foundation and he came to me with his business partner a while ago with the idea of having our own tournament. I thought it was a great idea, and we announced the Foundation shortly after that.So it seems like a natural fit, and if we can get this on the LET schedule, the Foundation will benefit financially and we can raise money for the causes we follow - Great Ormond Street Hospital and others like that. Davies feels there are not nearly enough events on British soil Its also a great chance for British players to play an event in this country. One of the main reasons theres a lack of British stars is that weve got the Womens British Open - and half of them dont get in it - and the Ladies European Masters. Only two tournaments on home soil is not enough.Im not saying its going to happen. Im not directly involved in it, but I know my brother is struggling to find a sponsor right now.Davies will also be glued to Skys televison coverage of The Masters next week, and feels Adam Scott will be the man to beat at Augusta National. Dame Laura is backing Adam Scott to win the Masters I think it will be Adams year again. I know Jason Day has just won back-to-back, but Adam did that earlier and hes won the Masters before and that might be the deciding factor. Jordan Spieth isnt playing brilliantly at the moment, so its tough to see him defending.I think Justin Rose will have a good run at it, but Scott would be my pick.For more details about the Laura Davies Foundation, visit her official website here.

NEW YORK -- Falling a game short of the NBA Finals last season, the clear goal for the Indiana Pacers is the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and the home-court advantage that comes with it. Keep this up, and they will have the best record in the whole league. Paul George scored 24 points and the Pacers improved the NBAs only undefeated record and the best start in franchise history to 7-0 by beating the Brooklyn Nets 96-91 Saturday night. David West added 18 points and hit the clinching free throws for the Pacers, who won their first six games in 1970-71, when they played in the ABA. They have the longest winning streak to open an NBA season since both the Lakers and New Orleans were 8-0 in 2010-11, according to STATS. "I really dont get too caught up in the historical value of it, other than were ahead of the race," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "Were trying to get the 1 seed to put ourselves in the position come playoff time with the best chance to come out of the East." Roy Hibbert finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds, and Lance Stephenson also scored 15 points. "We executed. Thats the maturity for this team," George said. "Years ago we would have lost that game. We would have lost this game tonight just on not making shots and not executing and getting guys in spots to be aggressive at. But were growing as a team. Were getting mature and were finding ways to win games." Deron Williams and Joe Johnson each had 17 points for the Nets, who fell to 2-4 and lost at home for the first time this season. Brook Lopez scored 16 and Paul Pierce had 15. "Were just learning to play together. We didnt have everybody healthy for training camp and were all coming together and trying to win a championship and it doesnt happen overnight," said Williams, who added 10 assists but had a costly late turnover and committed what he called a "stupid" foul on George Hills 3-point attempt down the stretch. "Were not panicking, we know its going to come together, were confident that we can overcome these little struggles and were going to sstay together no matter whats happening on the outside.dddddddddddd" Brooklyn trailed by 10 midway through the fourth quarter, but got a 3-pointer from Pierce that bounced on the rim at least four times in a spurt that cut it to 94-91, and they got the ball back after George threw away a pass with 20 seconds left. But Johnson was just long on a 3-point attempt with about 11 seconds to go and West grabbed the rebound and hit both free throws after being fouled. Vogel said the Pacers have made winning the East their priority after they lost Game 7 of the East finals on the road in Miami. The quick start has them well on their way. "Were just going out, playing the game," George said. "We feel very prepped for the game. Everybody is dialed in. Were not worried about keeping the streak alive, were just worried about going out there and playing our hardest and winning a ballgame." Indiana beat Chicago and Brooklyn, two of the top teams in the East, this week. The Pacers brought back their starting five and improved their bench, realizing that gives them an early advantage over teams like the Bulls and Nets that made changes since last season. "Cant take nothing away from Indiana. Theyre a pretty good team right now and were still a team thats kind of learning on the fly in game-time situations," Johnson said. The Pacers opened an early nine-point lead that the Nets wiped away thanks to a strong performance by their reserves. Brooklyn already had nine players score midway through the second quarter and took a 46-44 lead into halftime after Lopezs jumper with 11 seconds left. Indiana, which has trailed at halftime in six of its seven games, then outscored Brooklyn 28-21 in the third quarter. The Nets were without reserve Andrei Kirilenko, who has battled back spasms this season and woke up hurting Saturday. NOTES: Pacers president Larry Bird was in Terre Haute, Ind., on Saturday, where Indiana State unveiled a statue in his likeness before its season-opening game. Bird led the Sycamores to the 1979 NCAA championship game. ... Indiana snapped a four-game losing streak against the Nets. ' ' '
