‘Doesn’t Make Sense’: Golf World Reacts to Shocking Lydia Ko News

Lydia Ko is a New Zealand professional golfer who was born in Korea. The 25-year-old has had a remarkable career and a long list of accomplishments to go with it. The LPGA star ranked number one in the world at the age of 17, making her the youngest to ever do so among both genders. She is also the youngest female ever to win two major championships, doing so a few days before turning 19.



Ko recently won her 18th LPGA Tour title at the BMW Ladies Championship. She did so with a score of 7-under 65 in the final round. Lydia has been trending as of late, but not just because of her 18th LPGA win. Due to “logistical reasons,” Lydia’s coach for the past two years, Sean Foley, and her have decided to no longer work together, leaving the golf world jaw-dropped.



Lydia Ko and Sean Foley’s partnership

Lydia and Foley began their partnership during the peak of COVID in July 2020. Back then, Ko ranked outside of the top 50. In April 2021, Ko went on to win the Lotte Championship, putting an end to a nearly 3-year winless drought.

Despite no longer working together, Ko says that she’s extremely grateful to Sean for all he has helped her with, saying, “Over the past two years he has helped me evolve as a better player and person.” She further went on to give Foley an emotional thank you.




“Sean will always be a close friend. Sean has been and will be a mentor to me. Thank you again, Sean, for your inspiration and your support in my golf and personal life.”
