Tseng fires caddie Hamilton in search for lost dominance

Yani Tseng hasn't won on the LPGA Tour since the Kia Classic in March, missed her first cut in over a year two weeks ago and finished T-50 at the U.S. Women's Open. In search of an answer to her recent slump, Tseng has fired caddie Jason Hamilton, according to Golfweek.

Tseng told Hamilton the news by phone on Tuesday, though Hamilton told the publication he had felt an odd vibe from the world No. 1 for several weeks.

Thrice a victor on the LPGA Tour this year, Tseng has not broken par since the second round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic on June 2. Ten of her last 11 rounds have been over par.

The Taiwanese superstar is yet to determine looper to replace Hamilton in two weeks at the Evian Masters in France.
