Brooker voted Women's caddie of the year

SINGAPORE, March 1, 2008


Brooker, who comes from Leeds, Yorkshire, has worked with Lorena Ochoa for the past two years, guiding her to twelve of her victories. The world number one was the first to congratulate him as he stepped off the stage at the informal evening held at the Ritz-Carlton.

"He works really hard. He knows me really well and he's very good under pressure," said the Mexican.

"It's very important to find the right caddie. We understand each other. We believe that together we can do it and that's very important."

"She inspires you to be a better person, not just a better caddie," said Brooker.

"The way she handles every situation is something to admire. It's easy to look good when you are caddying for Lorena."

The caddies' night has become something of a legend at the tournament's "brother event" the HSBC Champions in Shanghai and will become an annual fixture in Singapore.

"The caddies are the unsung heroes of professional golf, and our awards nights are our way of recognising what they give to the sport," said Giles Morgan, HSBC's Head of Sponsorship.

"They work from sunrise to sundown day in and day out, week after week. They're the heart and soul of golf."
