Not complaining or anything, just curious how a handsome young pro golfer became Hyun-Kyung's caddie today. I'm sure there are ways for the men and women pro golfers to meet but I assumed for the most part they ran in different circles.

In this one, pretty sure the leader will come back to the field. Hoping some of those -3s and -4s post good rounds today! Looking at you, So Mi and Han Sol - what have you done for us lately? And NIKE girl - show us you deserve that special sponsor!
Hyun Kyung's caddie today was Si Woo Lee, Jin Young Ko's (and also Hyun Kyung's) swing coach.
This is good to see - HK admitting she needs some help this season. According to an article in Seoul Newspaper (on sports.v.daum.net) her father asked Si Woo to caddy (and I assume give some lessons) for the 1st two rounds this week.
Interesting story about Ga Eun's DQ this week - and why not just allow them to use the slope function too? If they're allowed to get accurate distance with the rangefinder, why not slope too?
(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Kwon Hoon Kim Dong-chan = Song Ga-eun (22), who plays an active part on the Korea Women's Professional Golf (KLPGA) tour, was disqualified for illegally using a range finder during the tournament. Song Ga-eun hit a 1-over par 73 with two bogeys and one birdie in the first round of the Seoul Shimbun Women's Classic (total prize of 1 billion won) on the lakeside of the KLPGA Tour held at the H1 Club (par 72, 6,654 yards) in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do on the 22nd.
However, after the match, she was disqualified for illegal use of the range finder. The KLPGA Tour explained, "I had to use a rangefinder with only a distance measurement function, but I used a product with an altitude measurement function, and the athlete recognized that fact and reported it when receiving the score."
The KLPGA Tour has allowed the use of rangefinders in organized competitions from this year, and this is the first time that an athlete has been disqualified for illegally using a rangefinder.
Song Ga-eun posted on her social media, "During the (Daebo House D Open) championship ceremony, the range finder got hit by water and broke, so I replaced it with a new one." After inquiring with the competition committee, I was told that (the product) could be used.” However, he admitted, "I think there was a mistake in communication. It was my fault for not fully understanding the rules." She continued, "So I used a rangefinder equipped with a slope function with the altitude measurement function turned off."
Song Ga-eun said, "After the game, I voluntarily reported this part, and I was told by the race chairperson that even if the slope function is turned off and used, it is not recommended to use a machine equipped with that function. I will understand the game better and play the game.”
This may be a long day for Hee Jeong Lim. She drove into the hazard on the easiest hole on the Golf course. Also the biggest fairway for a short hole. To make matters worst she pulled her fourth wedge shot left of the green. Hit a bad chip and two putted for a triple bogey. Her playing pardners hit it stiff and made birdie.
She may be alright she made birdie on two of the last three holes.
A note to Hee Jeong leaving a birdie putt short 99.9 percent of the time you miss it.
Ji Young had the same length putt got it to the hole made birdie. Hee Jeong really needs to focus better because she is a very good golfer.
