Mmm, not so equivilant, and probably wrong, but rally car driving, the navigator/passenger dude is kinda like a caddy.

Didn't google. Had come across it in a charity golf day trivia comp. Who, along with Norman infamousely conceded their two putts of 9 and 15 feet on the 16th of their singles match in the Alfred Dunhill Challenge?

Bingo sanga. Nick Price, they had agreed prior to the match that if they both had par putts they would concede each other. Even if they were 20+ feet. You're up.

Rippa. All right then I'll have a crack. Golf coach I had used to tell me this story all the time. After a spectator proclaimed “Make way for the next US Open Champion!” during the players' walk from the 16th green to the 17th tee (or so the legend goes…), which golfer infamously doubled 17 and 18 to lose the 1928 US Open at Olympia Fields?

OK, here's one a little bit closer to the present. How many shots under Par did Jack Newton finish when he won the 1976 NSW Open Championship?
