Lydia Ko's quest to win her first major championship won't begin until Thursday, but she's already won a title at Pinehurst - the title of most excited person EVER to be at the U.S. Open.

Ko arrived at Pinehurst on Saturday and has acted less like the No. 3 women's player in the world and more like the No. 1 men's fan in the world.

On Twitter and Instagram, Ko chronicled her weekend of watching and meeting some of the greatest players in the men's game. Take a look at the timeline:

Saturday, Ko tweeted: 

She then posted this to Instagram with the caption, "Had to see Phil Mickelson play! #MyFave #NoCamerasPlease"

Also on Saturday, Ko posted this photo with the caption, "Also got to take a picture Hunter Mahan! #OMGOMGOMG"

 She was back at Pinehurst on Sunday, where she tweeted:


The fun didn't stop there. She posted this: "(Got) to meet and hug Sergio Garcia today! Also got to walk inside the ropes and watch him play!"

Back watching Lefty on Sunday, Ko captioned this photo: "Also got to watch my favorite player Phil Mickelson! @callawaygolf #TeamCallaway"

Then, apparently Keegan Bradley was being a jokester. Ko wrote: "Photo with Ron Sirak :) and Keegan Bradley photo bombed us :p"

"I think my dad is excited!" she wrote on Instagram. YOUR DAD is excited?

 And then on Twitter...
