Andy Murray targets Tour caddie job after tennis career

Andy Murray revealed that once he his time on the tennis court is over, he would relish the opportunity to become a caddie on one of golf's professional tours.

The Scot also believes that the mental aspect of tennis is a transferrable skill that he could take into golf, as he starts to plan for the next chapter of his career.

Murray, 33, suffered a hip injury in 2019 and is working his way back to full health, but admitted a career working alongside a professional golfer after tennis would be ideal, while he would also consider doing his football coaching badges, having been a talented player at youth level and was even asked to train with Rangers, but turned the offer down to focus on tennis.

"I love sport, so something else that would interest me post-playing would be working in another sport," Murray told the Gentleman's Journal.

"I got asked about this a little while ago and, because I really like golf, being a caddie on a golf tour would be exciting - to be up close and personal with top golfers and to learn about another sport like that.

"There's probably also some crossover between tennis and golf on the mental side and things, and helping a golfer with that might be interesting.

"Or getting my coaching badges in football - that would be fun."

Murray is a keen golfer and although he would lack the experience that most of the caddies have on the PGA and European Tour, his years as a professional athlete would definitely come in handy in high-pressure situations.
