Woosnam Hires New Caddie


Ian Woosnam will employ his physiotherapist to carry his clubs in this weeks Wales Open.
Woosnam has temporarily hired 9-handicapper Nick Hooper, a physiotherapist who plays with Woosnam at his home in Jersey, Channel Islands.
Woosnam, the 1991 Masters champion, fired caddie Myles Byrne after he failed to report in time in the final round of last weeks Scandinavian Masters. The incident came just two weeks after Byrne inadvertently left a 15th club in Woosnams bag at the Open Championship.
Woosnam is trying to earn an automatic spot on the 2001 European Ryder Cup team. The 8-time Ryder Cupper is currently 16th in the standings.
