Caddies live by the motto of show up, keep up and shut up. Well Stephanie Sherlock's caddie forgot the first part of that creed on Friday. He arrived after Sherlock had started her semifinal match against Junthima Gulyanamitta. Sherlock's father carried the bag on the first hole. The caddie eventually reached Charlotte Country Club when his player was on the second tee. Apparently the caddie was stuck in traffic.
The Rules allow for a player to change caddies as long as the golfer only has one caddie at a time. So Sherlock did not breach any rules when her caddie showed up late.
She's certainly hoping that isn't the case for Saturday's semifinal match against Jessica Korda.
"We told him to be here an hour early tomorrow, please," said Sherlock smiling.
