Leaney still in search of a regular caddie

US Open runner-up Stephen Leaney is seeking a new caddy after his bagman linked up with Colin Montgomerie.

The 34-year-old had been working with Steve Rawlinson, but after Rawlinson quit to take up a position with the Scot, Leaney is desperately seeking a replacement with experience on American soil as he prepares to try and make a name for himself in the US.

"It's surprising when you are number 23 in the world and you can't find a caddie, but I haven't found someone I can commit to for the rest of the year," Leaney told BBC Sport while preparing for the French Open in Paris.

"I've had four (caddies) in the last five weeks. Now I've got Pete Coleman (Bernhard Langer's long-time partner) to fill in, but they are working next week, so I haven't got anyone lined up."

"I've had a dozen ask me what I am doing, but I've only got four more events in Europe this season. I am not that demanding as long as I can talk cricket and football and have a joke."

"But it's difficult to find someone like that not already on a great - and I'm not going to steal someone. If they want to leave of their own accord that is fine, but I am not going to say I want so and so."
