HUMBLE, Texas – Rory McIlroy’s regular caddie will have the afternoon off Wednesday at Augusta National – assuming it doesn’t rain, of course.
McIlroy confirmed Saturday that he will have tennis-star fiancé Caroline Wozniacki carry the bag for him again this year at the Masters Par 3 Contest.
“Yeah, I will, for sure,” he said after his third round at the Shell Houston Open, before adding, with a laugh, “She’s just worried that it might rain. If it’s raining, she’s not going to caddie.”
Wozniacki donned the caddie’s white jumpsuit at last year’s competition, even hitting – OK, flubbing – a tee shot on the ninth hole.
“I would say (regular caddie) J.P. (Fitzgerald) should be nervous,” Wozniacki joked with reporters last year, “but the thing is, Rory can’t afford me.”
