Caddysack: Pro Golfer Martin Kaymer Is So Whipped He Doesn’t Even Know It

The golf world was all atwitter yesterday with the news that Martin Kaymer, who just recently won the European Tour’s money title, had unceremoniously withdrawn from Tiger Woods’ Chevron World Challenge tournament. Also yesterday, his lovely girlfriend, Allison Micheletti, was playing this week at the Ladies European Tour Qualifying School, causing speculation that Kaymer preferred to spend his valuable time cheering on his special lady friend than competing in another tournament. Can’t say I blame him. She’s quite the fetching lass.

Now comes news that Kaymer is not only cheering on Micheletti at LET Q-School, he’s caddying for her. From the Ladies European Tour website (via Wei Under Par):

The world No.3 arrived in Spain from the Dubai World Championship to surprise his American girlfriend, whom he joined for dinner in the bar on Monday evening.

Golf’s hot couple was then spotted walking the fairways together, with the US PGA champion Kaymer carrying Micheletti’s bag.

Rebecca Hudson (@BecsHudson) tweeted prior to Tuesday’s second round: “Martin Kaymer is caddying for his girlfriend at Pre-Qualifying. Hope he gets the yardages ok!!”

He seemed to be doing a sterling job as amateur Micheletti’s score improved dramatically in the second round.

Ohhh, how very romantical! This Kaymer fella appears to be quite the guy. But whipped. So, so whipped. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course.
