Lydia Ko Fires Caddie Again

Lydia Ko split with her new caddie after nine events were over.


This has become news as it seems that she has developed an inability in keeping her caddies in line with her. It could also be contributed to the challenges of assisting the number one ranked lady golfer that might make it difficult for any caddie to adjust to her requirements. Gary Matthews was her latest caddie and news has come in stating that Ko would not be working with Gary Matthews. The breakup was confirmed to Randall Mell of Golf Channel by the management team of Ko.

She is nineteen years of age; it seems a volatile age when it is difficult for one to adjust to a talented golfer. She has had fourteen tour victories of the LPGA as well as won both majors. Ten of these events were with Justin Hamilton. Ko then fired Hamilton in the month of October last year. (more…)

I WOULDN’T MIND AN OFFER TO CAPTAIN THE RYDER CUP – FURYK

While serving as assistant captain, Jim Furyk had been on hand to watch the defeat of Europe by USA in the Ryder’s cup.


Furyk, during a PGA Tour event at the Travelers Championship earlier this year, had become the first golfer to shoot a 58, thus earning him the nick, Mr. 58.

And speaking via Golfchannel.com, Fury had said that if offered the opportunity to become the next captain of the U.S in the Ryder’s Cup, he would accept it with both hands.

“It’s all hypothetical,”

”I haven’t had a conversation with Tiger, Phil, and Davis. I haven’t had any conversation with the PGA of America, so I don’t want to put the cart before the horse.

“That committee is in place for a reason. If they decide ’18, ’20, ’22, whenever it is, if they decide that I’m the right person, I would love to have that job.

I think everyone would. Anyone in that position would want that tap on the shoulder and that confidence that Davis was given.” (more…)
