AUSTRALIAN OPEN: Two caddies were reported to have been involved in a fight on the putting green before the first round at the Lakes Course in Sydney. According to a report on smh.com, Grant Buchanan and Matt Kelly, who work for James Nitties and Marc Leishman respectively, came to blows in public.
On the day John Senden set the pace with a 66, it was claimed that punches were thrown before the pair fell to the ground and continued wrestling in front of players and spectators.
“Matt was a good friend of mine, [or] so I thought,’’ said Buchanan. “He said some things that offended me and I approached him to clarify it and clear the air, and he pretty much laughed in my face.”
