The 17-year-old World number one, who finished third at the Kia Classic in California on Monday, introduces the promotional video by one of her sponsors Callaway, saying "welcome to San Francisco, where I won the Swinging skirts last year".

"I'm going to show you a way around you have never seen before," she says.

She then hits her way around the focus points of the city, from Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz finishing at Baker Beach.

Ko will play the latest LPGA tournament in California this weekend.
