Daniel Kang (30), a Korean-American, broke up with his caddy ahead of the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions (total prize money of $1.5 million), the opening game of the 2023 LPGA Tour.
According to US Golf Digest, Daniel Kang and his longtime caddy, Oliver Brett, have recently parted ways. The two, 30-year-olds of the same age, worked together for five years from 2017 to last year, winning five out of six wins on the LPGA Tour.
The two also won the opening match last year. Therefore, a question mark is running on the sudden breakup that came out ahead of the title defense. Both sides have not commented on this. Instead, caddy Brett told Golf Digest, “I’m grateful for everything we’ve accomplished together.” 온라인바카라,
The two maintained a close relationship until last year. At the Mediheal Championship three months ago, “Brett is the hardest caddy I know. If someone says Brett is an idiot, he is probably Daniel Kang an idiot.”
Even ahead of the season opening last year, Daniel Kang said, “The reason I play golf even in the cold winter is for Brett. Because his dream is to win the AIG Women’s Open, where the weather changes,” he wrote. Brett is from England.
Daniel Kang, however, was unable to participate in the AIG Women’s Open due to a sudden illness. He was forced to leave the field after a tumor was discovered in his spine.
In September of last year, when Daniel Kang returned from spinal tumor treatment, he played with caddy Brett at the NW Walmart Arkansas Championship and advanced to overtime. Daniel Kang, who was defeated by rookie Ataya Titikun (Thailand), shed tears of joy, saying, “I am proud of the fact that I am here.”

Only 30 players who have won the LPGA Tour over the past two years are participating, but not a single Korean player is participating. Instead, Korean-Americans Daniel Kang and Andrea Lee will participate.
