Too hot for pants


ATLANTA - How hot is it at East Lake? For the first time in a 30-year caddying career Andy Prodger, K.J. Choi's caddie, wore shorts in a Tour round. Prodger didn't want any of the other caddies to see his break with tradition so he wore pants to the practice tee before changing on his way to the first tee.

'He needs SPF 4,000 for those (legs),' said one member of Team Choi.

Prodger is used to good-natured ridicule. He was voted the European Tour's 'best-dressed' caddie in 2008. That is akin to being named the most well-spoken host of a sports talk show.
