166847346Talk about a conflict of interests.
Duncan French is a caddie. He is the boyfriend of LPGA pro Christina Kim, currently ranked No. 217 in the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings. 
The only problem? He also caddies for Michelle Wie, who happens to be best friends with his girlfriend.
Could this end well? In a Q&A with Marlborough Express, French discussed his road from a scratch golfer who caddied on the European Tour to being on the bag for one of the highest profile golfers in LPGA history with a short stint caddying for his own girlfriend.

We have been very good friends ever since I have been on tour. Michelle
and my girlfriend are best friends on the tour. Michelle's old caddie
[Kiwi Brendan Woolley] left at the end of last year to go to the PGA
Tour so she was looking for a new caddie and gave me a call. I jumped at
the chance to work with her.
She is very supportive. Being a great friend of Michelle she wants her
to play to her full potential, which is very, very high. She wants what
is best for both of us and, at this stage, Michelle and I are both in a
good place so [Christina] is very supportive and happy.
