Sergio Garcia handed out tips to his new caddie, former tennis star Juan Carlos Ferrero, as he prepared for his title defence at the Thailand Golf Championship on Wednesday.

The world number seven showed Ferrero how to carry the bag properly and even went to fetch them both water -- normally the caddie's job -- at Amata Spring near Bangkok.

Ferrero, the 2003 French Open winner, may seem an unusual choice but Garcia won last year's event with his girlfriend, Katharina Boehm, carrying his clubs.

"Juan Carlos is one of my best friends," Garcia said, insisting: "He loves golf and has a three-handicap, so he knows what he is doing."

Boehm, an accomplished former US college player, is apparently unconcerned at being replaced as caddie and all three will go on holiday together after the tournament.

"But she wants to be back on the bag again some time," Garcia said, ahead of the tournament's start on Thursday.

"So you will see her again."
