Martin Kaymer Fires Caddie
By mustang6560 on 5/18/11
Martin Kaymer and caddie Craig Connelly called it quits after a year together. With Connelly at his side, Martin won his first major title, finished first on the money list on the European Tour and ascended to the top of the Official World Golf Rankings.
"Obviously Craig and me, we had a fantastic year together -- he's a very good caddie,” Kaymer added. “I just felt like I needed a change. It has nothing really to do with Craig -- he's a fantastic guy and he's been a good caddie for me.

"I haven't had any calls yet (from other caddies) -- I think nobody knows,” he said. “But obviously now some people will know."
Kaymer is just the latest player to change loopers. Dustin Johnson fired caddie and friend Bobby Brown (and the reaction from the gallery was "About time!"), Sean O'Hair, Boo Weekley, Adam Scott and a few others also decided it was time for a change. Even Franscesco Molinari settled on a change of scenery after more than five years with his caddie.

Kaymer's brother will be on the bag this week at the Volvo World Match Play Championship. With only a 24-man field, he has a chance to reach the top spot in golf again.
