Caddies swing for each other on green

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, 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.”
