Spanish 19-year-old Sergio Garcia has picked former Nick Faldo caddie Fanny Sunesson to carry his bag starting on 29 December in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Garcia, who is playing the first round of the Million Dollar Challenge on Thrusday in South Africa, was reported to have had 30 applicants for the job.

Jerry Higginbotham, fired a month ago by Garcia, has said the young Spaniard still has a lot of growing up to do. In October's World Match Play Championship in England, he took off his golf shoe and hurdled it down the fairway after slipping and hitting a poor tee shot.

"I heard that she works really hard," Garcia said of Sunesson. "Another good thing is that I am going to be playing in both the European and US tours, so to have a caddy who has been in both tours is always good."
