Argentina star Carlos Tevez swapped the football pitch for the golf course on Sunday when he caddied for countryman Eduardo Romero in the final round of the British Open.

After Romero shot a 77 in his third round on Saturday to drop out of contention for the title, Tevez asked the No. 109-ranked player if he could carry his bag for his fourth round.

Romero gave regular caddie Anibal Nunez the day off and set out with Tevez at 8 a.m. local time (0700 GMT) in the fifth grouping of the morning.

Tevez said “The chance to walk along the course and be around these great players is a pleasure and something unforgettable.”

Tevez couldn’t inspire Romero, though he shot a 12-over 82.
