Justin Rose has taken to social media to confirm the news that his long-time caddie Mark 'Fooch' Fulcher is stepping down from his golf bag in a bid to concentrate on his health following a recent heart procedure he underwent earlier this season.
Rose won the US Open, a gold medal at the Olympics and got to World No.1 alongside Fulcher, following a partnership that lasted 11 years.
But Rose has confirmed he is confident the pair will link up again in the future.

After an amazing 11 years with Fooch, our successful run together has finished for now, as Fooch is required to take an indefinite leave of absence from caddying to focus on his health and well being after the heart procedure earlier this year. He has been medically advised that a further period of recuperation is required. I wish him all the best as he works on getting 100% fit and healthy. I also have no doubts that we will stride up a 72nd hole late on a Sunday afternoon together in the future. #Fooch
