Ko is walking into the season with a new team, new equipment and new goals. Gilchrist and Ko have been honing in on her long game while working on the ownership of her swing. "That's been the real difference for me. It's been very simple. Making it into a natural swing instead of putting me into place," says Ko. "I started over-thinking myself in my last season - and when you're over-thinking and you're over the ball - that is not a good combination."
For Coach Gilchrist, the opportunity to work with Lydia Ko is an honor that comes with a lot of responsibility. "In the beginning, I try to build confidence through consistency, and from there begin to build their game," says Gilchrist. "That is the art of coaching to me... it is not to get into somebody's head - it's to get into somebody's heart. If you follow your heart, you'll get there quickly. It will change your mindset right away... Improving your club face can get you somewhere, but improving your outlook can get you anywhere in life."
Gilchrist also coaches some of the best players in golf including current LPGA Tour world #2 player Ariya Jutanugarn, world #4 Shanshan Feng, former #1 Yani Tseng, 10-time winner Paula Creamer, 2013 Rookie-of-the-Year Moriya Jutanugarn, and PGA Tour player Morgan Hoffmann.
