Tevez flops as Open Golf caddy

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez made his debut as a pro caddy at the British Open on Sunday but judging by his player's score it may well be his last carry.

The controversial Argentinian was on the bag in the final round for countryman Andres Romero. The two have become firm friends since Romero helped Tevez, a keen golfer, slash his handicap to a respectable 13 last season.

That was when the controversial forward took several months unsanctioned home leave in the wake of his bust up with City manager Roberto Mancini.

Tevez is back in the fold at City and played in the pre-season friendly win over Turkish side Besiktas in Austria on Friday, after which he flew in to watch Romero play the third round of the British Open on Saturday.

On Sunday he was on the bag, but it did Romero no favours at all as the 31-year-old, who came close to winning the Open five years ago at Carnoustie, plummeted to the bottom of the leaderboard with an ugly round of 12-over par 82.

Despite the miserable score, Tevez said he had enjoyed the round and admired the Royal Lytham course.

"The chance to walk along the course and to be around these great players is a pleasure and something unforgettable," he said.

"It was good to enjoy the last day with him. This was the dream of everybody who plays golf. It was my first major!"

"It was difficult to carry the bag because it weighed so much but it was fine.

"I couldn't give any advice about the slopes but I just carried the bag and supported him each hole.

"Andres is a professional and he knows everything already. We worked together very well."
