Lee Westwood will be without caddie Billy Foster for the Scottish Open in July, just a week before the 138th Open Championship at Turnberry.
“I organised the walk while I was working for Sergio Garcia, but Lee is fine with it,” said Foster.
Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson has suspended his PGA Tour schedule after his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer.
The former US Masters champion was the leading name at this week’s Byron Nelson Championship on the PGA Tour, but the 38-year-old has withdrawn to be with his wife Amy, who faces “major surgery, possibly within the next two weeks”, according to the PGA Tour website.
