I can't recall GC or the GIC identifying The New Ko's swing coach. Has it been mentioned here before? If not, it must be Si Woo Lee, who appears on SBS Golf Academy. He took several vids of his prize pupil below this week:
Based on his IG, it looks like he has taken over as Bo Mee Lee's coach. She was with this old guy name Bum Jo for many years ... maybe not anymore? He also conducted a camp in Palm Desert, CA last winter, which included So Young Lee.

WD Ha Na Jang
Sung Hyun Park
Hye Jin Choi
Jin Young Ko
Ha Na Jang, last week's winner, withdrew after 9 holes due to an ankle problem
Ji Hyun Oh had a 76 today. She just can't seem to get any positive momentum going...
Jin Young Ko had me a little worried on the front nine. The way she started out missing fairways and greens were unlike her. She hit a three woods off the tee on two holes that I didn't understand. Especially the four hundred yard ninth hole with the elevated green. Because of the hazard in front she had to lay up, made bogey. Sung Hyun and Hye Jin hit drivers on nine and made birdies. But Being Jin Young she righted the ship on the back nine.
Ha Neul missed a couple of short putts, but plus one not bad.
Strange that Ha Na Jang withdrew from the OK Savings with an injury. She was over par. However she had no limp when she won the Hana Bank. However the limp suddenly came back on this tournament. Of course she was over par, just saying.
