FILE - In this June 13, 2015, file photo, Sei Young Kim of South Korea hugs her caddie, Paul Fusco, on the eighteenth hole after completing the third round of the KPMG Women's PGA golf championship at the Westchester Country Club in Harrison, N.Y.

(Lancaster) -- The USGA says the caddie for Sei Young Kim was removed from the U.S. Women's Open for taking photos of internal notes on the course setup.

Paul Fusco will not be allowed to caddie this week at Lancaster Country Club.

The Women's Open starts tomorrow.

A spokesman says Fusco was found to have taken pictures of a USGA document.

Such matters as hole locations are not available to players until the day of the tournament.

Kim is a top LPGA Tour rookie and was runner-up in the last major.

She will have to find another caddie for the week.
