Truth & Rumors: Fanny Sunesson, legendary female caddy, hangs up the bib
The most successful female caddie of the past 20 years -- and arguably of all time -- is hanging up her bib.
Fanny Sunesson, who looped for Nick Faldo during his four-major run in the 90s, announced her retirement from caddying on Friday, deciding instead to focus on player coaching, according to PGATour.com. Sunesson caddied for Faldo from 1990 through 1999, and then again in the 2000s. In between, she worked for Fred Funk, Sergio Garcia and Notah Begay III. She currently works for Henrik Stenson, whom she helped win the 2009 Players Championship.
She already has experience coaching, too. Sunesson serves as Martin Kaymer's mental coach, helping him reach No. 1 in the world in 2011.
“Coaching is fun,” she told the website golf.se. “It allows for much as I did as a caddie, so I hope to do a good job there.”
