Watch Caroline Wozniacki hit a tee shot at the Masters [Video]

April 10, 2013|By Dan Loumena

Caroline Wozniacki, the former No. 1 women's tennis player in the world, took part in the Masters par-three tournament on Wednesday when she caddied for boyfriend Rory McIlroy, who happens to be the No. 2 golfer in the world behind Tiger Woods.

Although they denied for the longest time that they were a couple, the Wozniacki-McIlroy romance has been very public lately with each putting in appearances at the other's tournaments.

On Wednesday during the festive par-three event, Wozniacki donned  white coveralls and hauled McIlroy's golf bag around. Other players often bring along their children or spouses to take part in the event, having them attempt a putt or hit a shot.

McIlroy, who once grabbed Wozniacki's racket during an exhibition match and played a point against Maria Sharapova, invited his girlfriend to hit a tee shot during the round. As you can see from the video above, Wozniacki, who is now ranked No. 10, took a mighty swing. The divot traveled as far as the ball, which splashed down about 20 yards off the tee.

Wozniacki was interviewed later by ESPN's Tom Rinaldi, who asked how it came about that she would caddie for McIlroy.

"Well .. I don’t know," she replied. "I just had a good deal with Rory. I get a really good paycheck out of this."
