Golf genius’ Lydia Ko (25, photo) told the story of being ‘fired’ after working as her husband’s caddy. According to US Golf Week on the 18th, Lydia Ko caddied for her latest amateur tournament with her husband, Jung Joon. It was a new experience during her time to recharge to shake off the sluggishness in the last few competitions.
Lydia Ko, who got married at the end of last year, started the season in a good mood by winning the Aramco Saudi Ladies International in two months. However, she suffered a slump on the US Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour, which she has played since March. At the Chevron Championships, which was her first major event of the season, she was eliminated, and the Cognitive Founders Cup, which she competed in after a three-week break, also ranked only 42nd. She also dropped to number three in the world rankings, her highest position earlier this year.
Lydia Ko said, “I was frustrated for weeks after I lost Kurt at the Chevron Championship. She confessed, ‘What’s going on?’ She also introduced the story of manning her husband’s golf bag while taking a break to recharge. “I was her husband’s caddy for amateur competitions,” he said. “Her husband always tries to help me when I go to competitions. It was a rare opportunity for me to help her husband.”
She says that he was regarded as a ‘genius’ as a golfer, but was unsuitable as her caddy. He said, “I was very nervous as a caddy, but I made a few mistakes of handing covers instead of putters, so I almost got fired after a few holes in the first part of the game.” However, it soon took an active role. He said, “In an ambiguous situation, he taught her the rules and helped her choose a club.” “The second day, she really took care of her husband and became a much better caddy.메이저사이트
Lydia Ko takes a short ‘caddy life’ and participates in the tour again. From the 19th, she will compete in the European Women’s Professional Golf Tour (LET) Aramco Team Series Florida (total prize money of $ 1 million) to be held at Trump International in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA. Following this, she also has her major tournaments ahead, including the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and the US Women’s Open. He said, “June to August, when four major tournaments are held in a row, will be a long time, but I am looking forward to it.”
