A fan had an experience of a lifetime during the Canadian Open on Thursday, carrying the bags for golfer Robert Allenby after he fired his caddie mid-round.

A school principal named Tom Fraser carried Allenby's bag.

Allenby fired his original caddie after things got heated between the two:

I said to him, 'You know this happens every week. This has happened for like the last three or four or five months. We keep making bad mistakes and you're not helping me in these circumstances.' And he just lost the plot at me. He just told me I could go eff myself. And I said, 'Look, you need to slow down. I mean just calm down.' And then he just got right in my face as if he wanted to just beat me up. I said, 'Stop being a such and such and calm down and get back into the game.' And he just got even closer and closer and I just said, 'That's it, you're sacked.' I said, 'I will never have you caddie ever again.' And we never spoke for the rest of the (first nine) and when we got to 18 we walked off and he said some smartass remark to me and I said, 'You don't deserve to be caddying out there.' And he just got right in my face and threatened me so I said, 'Go.' So he left.

Fraser reportedly then offered to carry Allenby's bag, and he accepted. He did a pretty good job, too.

"He did a great job," Allenby told Logan. "He did everything he was told. He was a nice guy. I’m really thankful that he helped me out. It was nice to have someone friendly on the bag who didn't want to threaten me.”
