Masters furore erupts over ‘very obvious’ act from Brooks Koepka’s caddie

Brooks Keopka and his caddie have downplayed a furore over Masters rules regarding playing partners consulting or receiving advice from one another after day one of the prestigious tournament.



Koepka’s caddie, Ricky Elliott, had been seen on camera mouthing the word ‘five’ to caddie for playing partner Gary Woodland.



The controversy took an interesting turn when former golf pro turned commentator Paul McGinley suggested it was ‘common practice’ among many golfers – but the clear video footage showing Elliott directly indicating a five iron had been used to Koepka’s rival made cracking down a difficult prospect.



He said the clear evidence likely meant officials would have to crack down, but said many players ‘hand on heart’ would admit to similar indiscretions.
