LEGENDARY caddie Billy Foster reckons he got his role with Tiger Woods after being his “s***house saviour” in the toilets.

Foster is a recognisable face around golf’s most famous greens, having worked with the likes of Lee Westwood and Thomas Bjorn.

But in 2005, HE caddied for American icon Woods and may just have earned the role three years earlier.

As it was in 2002 that Foster went to the loo and noticed in the first toilet there was no bog roll.

But Woods failed to realise and it was then that Foster saved the day.

He told the Daily Mail: “I am walking out and I hear this little sigh. Oh, he knows now that he’s in trouble. And it’s six minutes until he’s on the tee.

“Oh Tiger. But I can’t do it to him, so I roll up some paper, get down on my knees, and present it to him under the door.

“I was the hand of god to him in that moment. ‘You’ll probably need this’. He grabs at it and then as I’m halfway through the door, I just say, ‘Europe, one up’, and walk out.

“He came out with the biggest smile. ‘Billy Foster, I owe you’. I caddied for him at the Presidents Cup in 2005 — I swear that’s why I got the job.

“Not because I’m a good caddie but because I was the s***house saviour.”

Foster will be back on The Open green this week with Matt Fitzpatrick.

It was Fitzpatrick who last year ended the caddie’s long wait for a first major, following his victory at the US Open.

Having spent over 40 years in the game, Foster has no plans to retire any time soon.

Although he reveals his biggest regret was turning down the chance to caddie Rory McIlroy in 2008 to instead partner with Sergio Garcia.

He admitted: “I look back on that and call myself a bit of a t***.”

How To

Which are the best golf clubs I should have in my bag?

The most important thing you should consider when choosing golf clubs is what type of golfer you are. You should consider buying a higher-end model if you plan to play at least once per week or every weekend. A set of mid-range golf clubs might be more appropriate for you if you play only occasionally. It all depends on how often you play and how much you are willing to spend.

A good set of woods is essential for anyone who hits a lot. They are very popular because they offer great accuracy and distance. These types of clubs are often made out of titanium or stainless steel which makes them very sturdy. When purchasing any type of wood club you’ll also want to make sure that you get the right size head. A smaller head will result in less forgiveness. However, a larger head can help you hit longer shots.

Also, a good putter will be a necessity. This is something that you’ll use quite frequently during practice sessions and tournaments. This will allow you to choose from two main options. There are two main options: a blade-style putter or a mallet-style putter. Blade style putters are more intuitive and allow you the ability to feel the ball approaching your face before hitting it. Mallet style putters tend to be less flexible and require more skill to master.

A few styles are best for irons. There are many styles of iron sets. Some people prefer to buy a full set of irons and others like to purchase just their fairway woods and hybrids. Before you make your final choice, try out several brands.

Wedge size is important. If you have a left handed swing, then an offset wedge is the best choice. On the other hand, if you have a right handed swing, then a straight through or straight through wedge is the best.

When selecting a driver, you’ll first want to determine whether you’re a pull hitter or a fade hitter. Drivers with a heavier weight are more popular among pull hitters. They have more power and torque behind their ball. They prefer lighter drivers. They’re more flexible and they’re able to produce more spin on the ball.

It is always good to have a variety clubs in your bag. You never know what you’ll need to add or change equipment. A large selection of clubs can ensure you have the right equipment for your needs.
