Lytham - Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez made his debut as a pro caddy at the British Open on Sunday but judging by his player's score it may well be his last carry.

The controversial Argentinian was on the bag in the final round for countryman Andres Romero. The two have become firm friends since Romero helped Tevez slash his handicap to a respectable 13 last season.

That was when the controversial forward took several months unsanctioned home leave in the wake of his bust up with City manager Roberto Mancini.

Tevez is back in the fold at City and played in the pre-season friendly win over Turkish side Besiktas in Austria on Friday, after which he flew in to watch Romero play the third round of the British Open on Saturday.

On Sunday he was on the bag, but it did Romero no favours at all as the 31-year-old, who came close to winning the Open five years ago at Carnoustie, plummeted to the bottom of the leaderboard with an ugly round of 12-over par 82.
