Sad to hear the news today that the longtime Justin Rose and faithful caddie Fooch partnership is coming to an end.

The official line is that Mark Fulcher aka Fooch taking an indefinite leave of absence to focus on his recovery after a heart operation in January.

Justin had Gareth Lord on the bag for four months whilst Fooch was out, but the pair teamed up again at the PGA Championship.

Alas the exertion might have been too much too soon for the legendary caddie and he has now taking medical advice to leave down the bag and focus on his recovery.

"He has been medically advised that a further period of recuperation is required," Rose said. "I wish him all the best as he works on getting 100 percent fit and healthy. I also have no doubts that we will stride up a 72nd hole late on a Sunday afternoon together in the future."

Gareth Lord will again take Rosey's bag at The Memorial.

Get well soon Fooch.
