Last month, Lydia Ko and Sean Foley parted ways. Foley, the former world No. 1 tennis player, announced their separation last month on Instagram. The former world No. 1 made the announcement via Instagram. They noted that they had decided to separate as players and coaches for “logistical reasons,” but that Foley would always be a close friend and mentor.

Ko wrote, “When I met Sean, I was at a point where I didn’t have much confidence in myself or in my game.” He has been a great mentor and friend over the past two years. We shared so much laughter and learning together.”

Ko, 25 years old, recently won the BMW Ladies Championship in South Korea. This was her 18th career title. Ko called it her best year to date. Ko is a two-time winner of this season’s LPGA. She also leads the Rolex Player Of The Year race with 11 top-5 finishes in just 20 starts.

Current No. Ko is currently ranked No. 3 in the world. Ko was not ranked among the top 50 when Foley hired her to work with her during the summer 2020.

She said that she had been watching a lot of her videos, or swing videos, for the past month since starting with Foley. It’s a little strange to Google or YouTube yourself. But I do it to see my swing as an amateur.

He’s taught me to not think about the details of everything. I have tried to change my mindset and not try to capture a video of every swing when I go to the driving range.

Then there’s the kicker: “It doesn’t have to look perfect for me to play golf.

Foley encouraged Ko to think inwardly, reminding her of the ingredients that made her the youngest person to reach No. 1, were still there.

With an absolute dart display at the Lotte Championship in April 2021, she ended a 1,084-day win drought. Foley was a key factor in Ko’s confidence regaining and changing her career’s trajectory. Foley helped Ko win three times on LPGA and one on LET.

With a chance of becoming No. She is now at the top of the leaderboard, having only a few events remaining in the season. Sura, Ko’s sister and manager, told Golfweek Ko had been working casually with Ted Oh again but that nothing is yet full-time. Ko began working with Oh in the 2018 season.

Before Foley, Ko was an instructor with Jorge Parada. David Whelan and Gary Gilchrist are among her former instructors. She worked as an amateur with Guy Wilson in New Zealand.
