We're used to seeing Caroline Wozniacki carry her own tennis bags out to the court before a big match, but I hope she's used to something a little heavier come Wednesday.
Her boyfriend and No. 2 golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy, confirmed on Tuesday that Wozniacki would be his caddie for the Par-3 Tournament, a yearly tradition at the Masters that brings family, kids and significant others out to enjoy a leisurely stroll around the short course at Augusta National before the first major kicks off on Thursday.
Q: On a happier note, will we see Caroline on the bag tomorrow?
McIlroy: Yeah, Caroline will be on the bag tomorrow.
McIlroy has struggled with his golf game much of the season, but found something last week at the Valero Texas Open, finishing second alone to Martin Laird and said he's excited about this week.
The advice we would give Wozniacki for her Wednesday caddie duties? Don't step in anyone's line, if Rory is the last one to putt make sure you grab the flag from the other caddie, and DON'T LET RORY WIN! No player has ever won the Par-3 and the Masters event in the same season, so if McIlroy is four or five-under heading into No. 9 I'd suggest tossing all the rest of those Nike golf balls in the pond and making sure he is forced to disqualify himself.
