US Women's Open golfer fires caddie mid-round
LPGA Tour player Jessica Korda fired her caddie in the middle of the US Women's Open.
And you thought the Bubba Watson-caddie relationship was tenuous!
See that guy up there in the photo standing next to LPGA Tour player Jessica Korda? Yeah, he's no longer employed.
According to Kelly Tilghman of Golf Channel, Korda fired her caddie, Jason Gilroyed, in the middle of the third round of the US Women's Open and snagged her boyfriend, also a professional golfer, to loop for her for the rest of the tournament.
After argument, Jessica Korda fires caddie mid-round in US Open, puts her boyfriend Johnny DelPreti on the bag.— Kelly Tilghman (@KellyTilghmanGC) June 29, 2013
Gilroyed is the former caddie of Cristie Kerr.
Last year the now 20-year-old Korda told Golf Digest she didn't want her dad to have to caddie for her anymore as he had done so many times during the earlier part of her career.
"He definitely doesn't want to," she said. "If I don't find anybody to caddie for me, he's more than willing to step in."
I guess we see now why he didn't want to.
Korda shot a 40 on the front nine Saturday at Sebonack in Southampton, N.Y., which, I guess, is why she let her caddie go mid-tournament.
Wouldn't want to be her boyfriend.
