Shane Lowry's Canadian Open final round sees fan caddie come to the rescue in 'f****** record'

Shane Lowry's final round at the Canadian Open was saved from jeopardy after a fan stepped into become a makeshift following a bizarre incident.

Irish golfer Lowry - caddied by Darren Reynolds - went into the close of play tied for 40th on a wet afternoon in Hamilton, Ontario on Sunday, playing alongside Taiwanese golfer CT Pan on the slippery course. Disaster struck on the third hole when Pan's caddie Mike 'Fluff' Cowen slipped and injured himself, and was subsequently unable to continue.

However, the day was saved when a spectator stepped up to carry Pan's bag, donning Cowan's caddie bib and receiving a warm welcome from Lowry, who gleefully shook his hand. The day turned into a team effort as multiple spectators took turns carrying Pan's bag. Lowry - who won the US Open Championship in 2019 - couldn't resist a joke when meeting the fourth volunteer caddie of the day, exclaiming: "Fourth caddie! ? That's a f**king record now!"
