Sweet ... Fanny Adam’s caddie
ADAM Scott has revealed how he lured Nick Faldo’s former caddie out of retirement in the hope she could prove the missing piece in the puzzle in his ongoing pursuit of British Open glory.
Swede Fanny Sunesson helped Faldo win the British Open and US Masters twice each in the 1990s before she guided Martin Kaymer to the world No.1 ranking as a mind coach.
She is carrying the Gold Coaster’s bag at Carnoustie for his 19th consecutive Open tilt.
Without Steve Williams for the first time at the Open since 2011 and having recently parted with English caddie David Clark, Scott admits even Sunesson was surprised to receive his left-field call.
“I thought about the people this week that I want to have standing next to me on the first tee on Sunday if we were in the last group and Fanny was at the top of that list,” the former world No.1 and 2013 US Masters champion said of the oneoff arrangement.
“She’s just a great caddie and hopefully we can lean on that experience on the weekend.
“That’s the plan, get ourselves in a position where we both want to be in and can both thrive under the pressure.”
The British Open began last night with Scott one of eight Australians hitting off.
Adam Scott opts for Swede.
