Coach Fanny

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

CHASKA, Minn. – Longtime caddie Fanny Sunesson might caddie for fellow Swede Henrik Stenson but she has coached German Martin Kaymer for 5-6 years on matters of course management and strategy. The two hit it off when the German national team enlisted Sunneson a few years ago to help in those areas.

“When I turned professional she helped me a lot with what’s going on on tour, what I have to look after, all the travel things and the golf courses, about the strategy,” said Kaymer, who meets with Sunesson most weeks to plot strategy.

“I wouldn’t call her a mental coach. That would be a little bit too much. She’s my coach.”
