Or any other mistakes for that matter. Caddies who have worked with Sunesson say she already ranks among the best in the world for staying focused and aware, not only of Faldo but also of his playing partners and what they are doing on the course.
"She's quick to rake sand for someone else or wash someone else's ball," says Freddie Burns, who has caddied for Hal Sutton on and off for 17 years. "But a caddie is only as good as what he does for his boss. For what Fanny does for Nick, I'd rank her an eight on a scale of 10. She is a caddie."
Sunesson broke into the caddie business 3� years ago when she decided she wanted a close look at the game as it is played at the top level. "I wanted inside the ropes," she said. "I wanted to learn some shots, see how the really good golfers played this game."
The daughter of avid golfers, she found her-sell with a club in her hands when she was seven but didn't start playing until she was 15, when she fell in love with the game. She played as often as she could and by the time she was 17 was a strong amateur player. Because Swedish television didn't carry much golf, she grew up not knowing who the top players were. She had heard of Palmer and Nicklaus, but, to her, they were a world away. She never dreamed she would be walking the same course with them.
Sunesson worked her handicap down to a five, but her interest wasn't sufficient to carry her much further. In 1986 she decided to try caddying. She went to a tournament in Stockholm where she pestered a number of pros for a job, finally persuading Jaime Gonzalez, a European tour player from Brazil, to hire her for the week. She was hooked on caddying.
"Until Jaime, I tried to get hired by everyone and anyone," she says. "But they all thought I didn't know anything because I'm a girl. Once they saw me work, though, they caught on that I did know what I was doing."
Last season she finally hired on with England's Howard Clark on a steady basis. Clark was paired with Faldo several times during the year, and it was then that her work caught Faldo's eye. She was "completely shocked," she says when Faldo spoke to her in Australia last December about coming to work for him.
Faldo, it turned out, was looking for someone to boost his mental game. For years he had worked with Andy Prodger, regarded as one of the best caddies in the business. Together, Faldo and Prodger won the 1987 British Open and the 1989 Masters. But Faldo grew unhappy with Prodger's quiet, laid-back style.
" Andy Prodger is the best caddie in the world," says Hicks. "But Nick needed more. Once he said, 'How many bogeys do I have to make before you say something?' Fanny has been very good for Nick. She is positive, upbeat and very encouraging."
Faldo says Sunesson keeps him motivated. The two chatter between shots. She often reminds him when he's on the tee to keep his tempo down, and on the green to keep his head still. "She's keen on working hard," Faldo says. "She makes very few mistakes, and that is what makes a good team. She has done a very good job."
