LPGA Tour susperstar Lydia Ko left Golf Channel commentator Jerry Foltz at a loss for words at the Palos Verdes Championship as a result of her sheer honesty during her interview.
Ko, 25, explained to Foltz during her interview that her mid-round physical therapy was all because it's "that time of the month."

Here's how a number of golf fans reacted to Ko's interview with Foltz:
A bizarrely endearing moment that probably is going to bring her a lot of new fans. It was just awesome.— Golf Anomaly (@TheGolfAnomaly) May 2, 2022
She’s my new fav!— Brenda Calcavecchia (@brendacalc) May 2, 2022
Ok. This is actually amazing. I’m not one to necessarily talk about that often (or ever) but Lydia is a cool chick. She’s honest and this is humanizing. I love Lydia. Even if I don’t love period talk— Amanda Rose (@AmandaGolf59) May 2, 2022
I love her honestly! I'm not surprised he was caught off guard by her answer, but it is kind of sad that we're still "shocked" by women having periods in 2022. Let's normalize this and stop making women feel like they have to be "ashamed" for something completely natural.— Chad M (he/him) (@Russian_Burrito) May 2, 2022
Yep, cause an adult talking to another adult about her period is the same as a teacher in front of a bunch of 5 yr olds talking about gender identity and and sexual preference.— Paul Lenz (@plenzmd1) May 2, 2022
She is so freaking awesome, not sure why the reporter was at a lost for words. He asked, she informed.— Leo Berrez (@TrilogyfitLEO) May 2, 2022
