Sei Young Kim is off to a rookie-of-the-year type season with two LPGA victories in 2015. But if the 22-year-old South Korean is going to win the U.S. Women’s Open this week at Lancaster (Pa.) Country Club she’ll have to do it without her regular caddie.
Paul Fusco, a veteran looper who has also worked on the PGA Tour, took a cellphone photo of the hole locations and course set-up notes for the week, according to sources familiar with the situation, and when the breach was discovered by USGA officials he was banned from the tournament.
Sources say that Fusco was in the USGA Rules office — where he was not credentialed to be — taking the photos when an official walked in on him. The sources say there will be no penalty for Kim.
