Golfer fires caddie during U.S. Open, swaps him for boyfriend

Women's golf ... welcome to reality TV.

In what has to be one of the most Kardashian moves ever seen in sports, golfer Jessica Korda fired her caddie during the middle of the third round of the U.S. Women's Open, and replaced him with her boyfriend, Johnny DelPrete.

DelPrete looks kind of skittish about screwing up her approach at first glance — given that a four-over stretch over her last four holes dropped her from the top five to two-over and may have prompted the switch from her first-string bag holder, Jason Gilroyed — but we understand.

"Johnny, grab the bag, let's go," Korda reportedly demanded during the caddie switch. Words Johnny has probably heard before — especially during shopping trips to the mall.

Korda, 20, said she never fired a caddie mid-round before — don't worry Jessica, you're never too old to be bratty— but they had some disagreements over the first nine, and claims she wasn't in the right mind play well.

"I care about Jason a lot," said  Korda after her round. "That's just how things happen in life."

It's fair to laugh a little, but the situation's got to be genuinely weird for Korda, whose entire family is at this U.S. Women's Open: Her 14-year-old sister, Nelly, made the cut, and their dad, 1998 Australian Open champion Petr Korda, is on her bag this week. 

Still, it sounds like someone just got gilroyed.
