Craig Connelly, the long-service caddie who split up with Martin Kaymer after the Players Champion on Sunday, is already back in business.

He’ll be carrying the bag of Francisco Molinari as from next week after receiving a phone call from the Australian star only a few hours after his split with Kaymer had been announced.

Molinari, who in turn has just split with his caddy of 5½ years, Jorge Gamarra, phoned Connelly and the two worked out an agreement before the night was out.

Molinari is playing in this week’s Volvo World Match Play championship, but Connelly’s is only set to start his new job with him next week when he is scheduled to play in the European Tour’s flagship BMW PGA Championship.

Kaymer, in the meantime, will tackle this week’s match play championship with his brother Phillip on his bag, but the German World No 3 has made it clear that this is only a temporary measure and that he is currently on the lookout for a full time caddy.

In other player-caddy switches, Score Golf has reported that Brennan Little, who had been working with Sean O’Hair on the US PGA Tour until the trouble American golfer fired both him and his swing coach Sean Foley, has joined Colombian star Camilo Villegas, who has let go Mick Doran.

Also fired is Australian Adam Scott’s caddy, Tony Navarro, who has been working with the Australian golfer since 2004.

He has been replace on Scott’s bag by Doran.
