Jessica Korda Fired Her Caddie For Boyfriend Video

On a wild day at sun-drenched, seaside Sebonack Golf Club — high winds, strenuous pin placements and only one player under par in the third round — most everyone at the U.S. Women’s Open was on edge from their first tee shot.

Disagreements between player and caddie were frequent as shot selection and the flight of the ball were up for debate on nearly every shot. That was a burden for some more than others, and a shouting match between Jessica Korda and her caddie, Jason Gilroyed, ended up in an unusual dismissal.

Korda fired Gilroyed after nine holes and put her boyfriend, Johnny DelPrete, on the bag. Korda went on to bogey the 12th hole. She shot 40 on the front nine but came home with a 36 on the back for a 4-over-par 76.

She is tied for sixth, 11 shots behind Inbee Park, who was the only player to break par.

“We had a couple of disagreements here and there, and I wasn’t in the right state of mind. I knew I needed to switch and just have a little bit more fun out there,” Korda said. “It’s a U.S. Open. It’s tough out there. It just wasn’t working out.
