Terry's missus on the bag


The Open Championship In Association With Nikon

Aussie Terry Pilkadaris is a very brave man indeed.

Some macho golfers wouldn't be seen anywhere near a golf course with their 'better halves' but 36-year-old Pilkadaris is definitely an exception to the rule.

So much so he has his wife Monique acting as his caddie and the duo get on like a house on fire - on and off the course!

After firing a fine opening round 68 (-2), Terry was struggling in the wind in the early stages of his 2nd round but Monique was doing her level best to keep hubby on track and hopefully around for the weekend.

A brilliant birdie at the par-3 6th gave the thre-times Asia Tour winner hope but whatever happened on the vital back nine, Terry is likely to retain the services of his ultra-reliable bag lady for some time to come...on and off the course.
