Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has come in for criticism over his caddying on the weekend at the British Open.

Tevez caddying during the final round of the Open has been described as "absolute madness" by Royal and Ancient Club championship committee chairman Jim McArthur, says the Daily Mail.

Manchester City striker Tevez caused a stir when he carried the bag for his Argentinian compatriot Andres Romero on Sunday at Royal Lytham.

"He never put the bag down, even when he was standing on the green - it's just absolute madness," McArthur said. "I think we need to look at this particular case. We normally get a list of caddies at the start of the week."
