Tevez caddies for Romero at British Open

Argentina football star Carlos Tevez swapped the pitch for the golf course on Sunday when he caddied for countryman Eduardo Romero in the final round of the British Open.

After Romero shot a 77 in his third round Saturday to drop out of contention for the title, Tevez asked the No.109-ranked player if he could carry his bag for his fourth round.

Romero gave regular caddie Anibal Nunez the day off and set out with Tevez at 8am local time in the fifth grouping of the morning.

Tevez says “the chance to walk along the course and be around these great players is a pleasure and something unforgettable.”

Tevez couldn’t inspire Romero, though – he shot a 12-over 82.

The pair have been friends since meeting at the 2008 British Open at Royal Birkdale.
