Lydia Ko welcomes the 2023 season with a new caddy

World No. 1 Lydia Ko (New Zealand) starts the 2023 season with a new caddy.

Golfweek, an American golf media outlet, reported on the 8th (Korean time), “Lydia Ko will compete in the Aramco Saudi Ladies International next week, the first game of the 2023 season, with her new caddy, David Jones.” The media added that it was confirmed by Ko Soo-ra, Lydia Ko’s older sister and manager.

Lydia Ko’s new caddy, David, is familiar to Korean fans. In 2021, when Lydia Ko won the Lotte Championship after 1084 days, Inji Jeon won the Evian Championship in 2016 as a caddy, and Sunghyun Park won the 2017 US Women’s Open and the 2018 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

It’s surprising that Lydia Ko has parted ways with Derek Kistler, her caddy last season, who had ‘the best year’. Lydia Ko won three victories, including winning the CME Group Tour Championship, the final match of the season last year, and accomplished many things, including the Player of the Year award, the Bear Trophy awarded to the top average batting average, and the return to the top spot in the world rankings.

Lydia Ko has not commented on the breakup with Kistler. There is only speculation that Lydia Ko’s usual tendency to choose change rather than complacency when she reached the top was reflected this time as well.

Lydia Ko, who got married at the end of last year, returns to the field next week after a long honeymoon. The Aramco Saudi Ladies International, a European Women’s Tour (LET) match in Saudi Arabia, is her first match. Lydia Ko won this tournament in 2021 by defeating Ataya Tinikun (Thailand) by 5 strokes.

In addition to Lydia Ko, Hyo-Joo Kim, Eun-Hee Ji, Jung-Eun Lee 6, A-Rim Kim (above Korea) and defending champion Georgia Hall (England) ), Lexi Thompson, Daniel Kang (USA), Hannah Green (Australia), Ashley Buhai (South Africa), Anna Norquist (Sweden), and Patty Tabatanakit (Thailand).
